Michaela Braun


1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 cups finely chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 cup molasses
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon paprika
1/3 cup bourbon whiskey

In a large, heavy saucepan, melt the butter with the oil. Saute the onions until tender. Add the garlic and cook 2 minutes longer.

Cajun spice mix for the Mahi Mahi

1/3 cup kosher salt
1/4 cup chili powder
1/4 cup Hungarian paprika
1 Tablespoon onion powder
1 Tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
1 Tablespoon dried basil
1 Tablespoon dried oregano
1 Tablespoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon white pepper

Mix well

Mahi Mahi

Rub Mahi Mahi with the Cajun spice mix
Brush both sides of the mahi mahi fillets with canola oil.
Cook the fish for 2 minutes directly on grill; rotate the fish one-quarter turn without flipping it.
(This gives the fish an attractive diamond pattern from the grill.) Cook for 5 minutes longer on the same side.
Flip fish and cook for 5 minutes longer. Fish is done when it feels firm to the touch.

6 shrimp for each Mahi Mahi steak

Season shrimp also with spice mix and grill 1 to 2 min each side. Best when you put shrimp on a kebob stick.

When Mahi Mahi and shrimp are done pour the Bourbon sauce over it and serve with mashed potatoes.

Personal Notes:
I went to New Orleans with Jenny Troester and Amy Shane. We had great seafood, and one night, when we were at Bubba Gumps, this was the meal I had. It was out of this world.
