Crab Topped Mahi Mahi with a Lemon Sauce over Brussels Sprouts

Apolinaras recently sold one of his business ventures so I decided to whip up a celebratory meal with several of our favorite splurge ingredients – lump crabmeat and wild Mahi Mahi fillets! I made a crab cake mixture and piled it high atop the fish. Apolinaras loves Brussels sprouts, so I finally tried roasting some and immediately fell in love – why haven’t I tried doing this sooner?!? I nestled the flilets on top of the Brussels sprouts and pulled it all together with a luscious lemon sauce with a touch of honey and heavy cream. I used Vermouth in the sauce because we had it around, but you could substitute a dry white wine as well. It was so fun to have an excuse to make such an indulgent dinner!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts:
2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed of the brown bottom and cut in half
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt

Crab Crusted Mahi Mahi:
1 pound lump crabmeat
3/4 cup panko
1 large shallot, chopped (1/4 cup)
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 egg
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 9-ounce Mahi Mahi fillets

Lemon Sauce:
1/2 cup vermouth
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions:
Heat oven to 400˚F. Place Brussels sprouts on a large cookie sheet. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt. Mix well and roast at 400˚F for 25 minutes or until browned and tender, stirring once halfway through roasting.

Reduce oven to 350˚F. Place lump crabmeat, panko, shallot, garlic, mayonnaise, egg, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl and mix well. Evenly sprinkle remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt on both sides of Mahi Mahi flilets and place on a greased cookie sheet. Evenly top fillets with crab mixture, packing it well on top. Bake at 350˚F for 22 minutes or until fish is cooked through (center should be 145˚F). Remove from oven and heat broiler. Broil for one minute or until crab topping is golden brown.

Meanwhile, make lemon sauce by placing vermouth and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Heat for 6 to 8 minutes over medium heat or until reduced by half.
