This one has got to be one of my all time favorites. The acidity from the rhubarb and peach compote with the Mahi Mahi makes for a perfect pairing. Add some roasted rosemary potatoes and some fresh green beans and you have yourself a meal that stands with the best.
You will want to get your potatoes going first as they take the longest to cook. Preheat the oven to 400 and cut your potatoes into 1/2 inch sizes and place into a large mixing bowl. Chop some fresh rosemary and srizzle your potatoes with olive oil. Add salt, pepper and rosemary, mix well to make sure every potato gets coated. Place them in a large baking pan and make sure that they are not stacked, we want a nice crisp on them. Place them in the oven and let them roast for about an hour, use a spatula to toss them around mid way through cooking.
For your compote you will need to dice two stalks of peeled rhubarb and one one peach. Place in a wide pan with 1/2 cup of a sweet red wine and 1/2 cup water. Mix in your orange and lemon juice and bring to a boil. You will want this mixture to reduce quite heavily. Once it has come to a boil lower the temperature to a simmer and let it cook off while you do the rest.
Rub your Mahi in some oil and sprinkle with kosher salt. Grill for about 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until it is cooked completely through. Fish should be cooked to a minimum of 145 degrees if you wanted to use a thermometer.
When your fish is off the grill take your compote and place into a blender or food processes and mix until it is smooth. Plate the Mahi over the compote and top with finely cubed fresh peaches. You can quickly heat the peaches in a saute pan with a splash of lemon juice if you want them cooked.
Now just add your potatoes and vegetable of choice…Just make sure to reserve some of the compote as people seem to ask for more.
