One-Pan Seared Mahi Mahi Recipe

Sear Steakhouse is a new restaurant right on Lake Ray Hubbard in the Harbor Development in Rockwall.

As the name suggests, they sear a lot of steaks.

But for Good Day, Chef Tom Fleming showed off his searing technique with fish and an easy sauce.

The recipe takes just a few minutes and since it's all done in one pan, the cleanup is easy as well.
