Mahi Mahi Wonton Cups with Spicy Pineapple Ranch

Raise your hand if you think Mahi-Mahi is a dauphin!
IMGP0353 I know, I know, we’ve all thought that (well, some of us). It’s not really dolphin. It’s a tropical fish called the pompano dolphinfish.

Oh, and it’s delicious. It’s a very nice fish that has the decency to not smell like fish ass AND stands its own like a good solid steak. I love this fish. It has class.
IMGP0348 I typically make salmon or tilapia, but I really wanted something different a few nights ago, so I picked up some mahi mahi and made fish tacos. I had some left over and I gotta find something to do with that, of course.

If you know me, you know you’ll see a plethora of rubbermaid containers full of stuff in my fridge at all times. This morning Mark was getting a drink out of the fridge and mentioned that my experiments and leftovers need their own fridge so they don’t have to climb over it. I can’t tell you the times that I have been so glad that I’ve saved a couple of uneaten grilled chicken breasts that turned into chicken salad, or leftover ginger broccoli that turned into a nice cold pasta salad the next day.

I took the leftover fish and made these little appetizers using some of the fish taco toppings from the night before; mango, cilantro, red cabbage slaw and a pineapple ranch dressing that I added some heat to with a little Sriracha.
