Ingredients

THAI BASIL-SHIITAKE ORZO 'RISOTTO':

Directions

On a dinner plate, mix together the flour, tumeric and cumin. Season the fillets with salt and pepper and dredge in the flour mixture. In a large saute pan on high heat, coat lightly with oil and pan sear the fillets until brown on both sides, about 4 to 5 minutes a side. Let fish rest 5 minutes to carry over before serving. In a medium, non-reactive saucepan on medium heat, coat lightly with oil and saute the onions and ginger until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the preserved lemons, tomatoes and juice. Season and check for flavor. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, until tomatoes are melted. Pull off stove and keep at room temperature. Check again for seasoning. Add the parsley right before serving.

THAI BASIL-SHIITAKE ORZO 'RISOTTO':

In a large saute pan, coat with olive oil and saute the garlic and shallots until soft, about 2 minutes. Season and add shiitakes. Saute for 3 to 5 minutes until soft and deglaze with wine. Reduce by 50 percent then add orzo to heat thoroughly. Right before serving, stir in basil oil.

PLATING: Place a small mound of orzo in the middle of the white dinner plate. Top with fillet of Mahi and top the fish with the chutney. Drizzle some basil oil and garnish with parsley.
