Kick-start the day with a savory sandwich made of herb-seared mahi-mahi, fried egg and sautéed vegetables on toasted ciabatta bread.

SERVING SIZE: 1 sandwich (439 grams)
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOKING TIME: 20 minutes


  • 2½ tablespoons (36 milliliters) vegetable oil, divided
  • 1¾ cups green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1¾ cups red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 cup yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 cup baby portabella mushrooms, washed and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chives, minced
  • 4 6-ounce mahi-mahi fillets
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 ciabatta rolls, sliced in half, toasted


  1. To a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons oil.
  2. Add peppers, onions, mushrooms and chives and sauté 7 minutes until vegetables are tender and onions translucent. Place in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Season fish with garlic powder, rosemary, pepper and salt.
  4. In the same skillet over medium heat, heat ½ tablespoon oil and add fish fillets.
  5. Sear for 4 minutes, or until browned on the bottom and sides. Flip fish and sear for 4 minutes. Cook until a minimum internal temperature of 145°F (63°C) is reached. Transfer to a serving platter and set aside.
  6. In the same skillet over low heat, add eggs one at a time. Cook slowly until whites are set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard, about 3 minutes. Carefully flip over eggs and cook until whites and yolks are firm.
  7. To assemble, place ¼ cup vegetable mixture, 1 fish fillet and 1 fried egg on 1 half ciabatta roll. Top with the other half of the roll. Repeat to assemble 4 sandwiches.
