Potato-Horseradish-Crusted Mahi-Mahi

My hubbie is my biggest cheerleader in the kitchen. I'm pretty sure he learned long ago that he gets extra brownie points when he makes a big deal over the meals I prepare. I can tell which recipes he's crazy over when he tells everyone who will listen about my supreme cooking skills with special emphasis on this meal or that. The Potato-Horseradish-Crusted Mahi-Mahi is one he hasn't stopped talking about. I hope you enjoy this one as much as he does!

Potato-Horseradish-Crusted Mahi-Mahi
Recipe courtesy of EatingWell.com

1 cup precooked shredded potatoes
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 Tablespoon prepared horseradish
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 1/4 pounds mahi-mahi, skin removed, cut into 4 portions
4 Tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon canola oil
1 lemon, quartered

Combine potatoes, shallot, horseradish, mustard, garlic salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Spread each portion of fish with 1 teaspoon mayonnaise, then top with one-fourth of the potato mixture, pressing the mixture onto the fish.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Carefully place the fish in the pan potato-side down and cook until crispy and browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Gently turn the fish over, reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking until the fish flakes easily with a fork, 4 to 5 minutes more. Serve with lemon wedges.
