Thai Coconut Mahi-Mahi

This Thai Coconut Mahi-Mahi is simple, delicious and quick to throw together. I love Mahi-Mahi and the flavors in this dish are incredible! I served this over some simple roasted cauliflower rice and sauteed sugar snap peas.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat baking mat.

Place coconut milk, curry paste, lime juice, monk fruit/erythritol/sugar, ginger root, garlic and fish sauce in a small sauce pan and stir well to combine. Bring mixture to a boil, stir, and reduce to a simmer and simmer, uncovered, for 6-7 minutes. Set aside.
