Creamy Crab Pesto over Mahi Mahi Recipe

  • 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
  • 2 (4 ounce) fillets mahi mahi
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • salt to taste
  • 1 pinch ground white pepper
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1 (1.2 ounce) package creamy pesto sauce mix
  • 4 ounces fresh crabmeat
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  1. Heat a small amount of the olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Season mahi mahi with oregano, salt, and white pepper; cook in skillet until the flesh flakes easily with a fork, 7 to 10 minutes per side.
  2. While fish cooks, whisk remaining olive oil, milk, and creamy pesto sauce mix together in a saucepan over medium-low heat; cook, stirring regularly, until it begins to thicken, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and stir crabmeat into the sauce.
  3. Transfer cooked mahi mahi to plates and spoon sauce over the fish.
