Stir Fried Mahi Mahi with Rice Noodles (Thai style)
1 1/2 lbs Mahi Mahi, cubed
4 Tbsp peanut oil, divided
2 fresh green chilies, seeded and chopped
Grated rind plus the juice of 1 lime
1 Tbsp fish sauce
4 oz wide rice noodles
2 shallots, sliced thinly
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 fresh red chili, seeded and chopped
2 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp hot chili sauce (Sriracha)
1 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
Place the fish in a shallow bowl and in a separate bowl make the marinade. Mix half the oil, green chilies, lime juice and rind, and fish sauce together and pour over the fish. Cover and chill for two hours. Put the noodles in a bowl, cover with boiling water and leave for 8-10 minutes (or check your package instructions). Drain well and set aside. Heat the second 2 Tbsp of oil in a wok or large skillet and sauté the shallots, garlic, and red chili until lightly browned. Add the soy sauce and the chili sauce. Then add the fish with the marinade to the wok and stir fry gently for 2-3 minutes or until cooked through. Add the drained noodles and stir gently. Mix in 1 Tbsp or cilantro and serve immediately.

I followed the recipe exactly but used fine noodles and added a chopped up Serrano pepper. This is a killer recipe. Wonderful flavors and nice and spicy.
Thank you so much for the feedback Ralph 🙂
