I make it sound so fancy. Reality is I have little to no time for cooking but I really want to eat well. I don’t think I’m alone in this. I like to make meals that will fuel me for the day or night without taking a ton of time or a lot of money but taste great. Jam is an easy solve to make that happen. I used jam for the glaze so if you have some Punchy Monkey we’re in business!

Punchy Monkey Jam

Banana Glazed Mahi Mahi with Cilantro Lime Rice and Black Beans

2 mahi filets

lemon pepper to taste

1 lime

bunch of cilantro


1 can of black beans

1/4 cup Punchy Monkey Jam


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place parchment or aluminum foil in a pan, add the Mahi and season with lemon pepper, cook for 25 minutes. Remove Mahi from oven, coat each piece with 2 tablespoons of punchy monkey jam, put it back in the oven and turn to broil, cook another minute or two, just to warm and yum!

just out the oven

While the fish is cooking, cook the rice. Pick the cilantro quarter the lime and cut off the ends. When the rice is done, squeeze two wedges over the top and toss with as much cilantro as you like, it is delicious!

Lastly open up that can of black beans and heat it up. Plate it with the last two lime wedges and enjoy!
