    Loved it. I had a pound of mahi-mahi that I cooked this way. I used the leftovers the second day by sauteeing a summer squash in butter, adding a bit of leftover marinara sauce and the leftover mahi-mahi, simmered for just a few minutes — it was amazing. Previously when Iʻve cooked mahi-mahi I havenʻt used extra liquid with it. That seems to be the key. Simmering it in the chicken broth, it was perfection. Next time I might even go all out and cook some more squash and add the marinara sauce to the fish first time around, it was that good.

    1. Hi, Susan. We are glad you enjoyed it!
