Mr. Hawthorne Prepares Mahi Mahi And Rosie Makes A Special Coleslaw.

Here's our Saturday Night dinner: sauteed mahi mahi, corn on the cob, and my coleslaw concoction.
Mr. Hawthorne heated his skillet, added butter and olive oil, and put in his mahi mahi fillets, seasoned with freshly ground salt and pepper and some Old Bay Seasoning. He cooked these for about 3 minutes each side, then deglazed the pan with white wine. Meanwhile, I made the coleslaw.
My ingredients: 1/2 medium cabbage (about 1 quart shredded) 1/2 onion 1 stalk celery 1 carrot 1/2 jalapeno 1 apple handful each walnuts, raisins, and cranberries about 1/4 cup cider vinegar about 1/4 cup sugar about 3/4 cup mayo
Here are the shredded shredded cabbage, carrots, and apple with chopped celery, onion, and jalapeno.
Mix all ingredients together, then add in a handful each of walnuts, raisins, and cranberries.
Slightly less than 1/4 cup sugar went in.
And slightly less than 1/4 cup cider vinegar. Add in about 3/4 cup mayo and mix all together.
Here's the mahi mahi. Delicate, sweet fish with a hint of wine.
And here's my slaw. Tart, sweet, fruity, and nutty. You could taste every ingredient. And all the Hawthornes loved this slaw.
Very light dinner with wonderful flavors.
