Panko Crusted Mahi Mahi w/Homemade Tartar Sauce

If you are one of those people that thinks you don't like fish, then you should try Mahi Mahi. It's a very mild sea fish (I think that fresh water fish tends to be "fishy"), with a texture more like chicken than fish. I cut the fish fillets up into strips before breading & my little boy actually thought it was chicken!

1 lb. Mahi Mahi fillets
1 1/2 c. panko bread crumbs
1 T. garlic powder
1 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1 T. olive oil
2 eggs

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. In a shallow dish, lightly beat the eggs & season with salt and pepper.
3. In another shallow dish, combine the panko, garlic powder, salt & pepper. Toss to combine, then add the olive oil and toss again.
4. Dip the fish in egg then in panko until well crusted. Place a cooling rack onto a cookie sheet & bake fish for 20 minutes until golden brown.

Tartar Sauce:
3/4 c. mayo (or a mayo/miracle whip combo)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 green onion, sliced
1-2 T. sweet relish (like the kind you put on your hotdog)
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Salt & Pepper

Made this tonite, added a bit more seasoning (Lemon/herb, garlic/herb and a dash of garlic/jalapeno) - it was DELICIOUS.
