Bahamian Mahi Mahi
2 lbs. mahi mahi fillets
1/2 c. dark rum
1/2 c. fresh lime juice
2 onions, sliced into thin rings
1 lemon, sliced
2 tsp. dried oregano
4 TB. butter
ground black pepper to taste

Arrange fish fillets in oven proof 9x13 glass pan.  Pour the rum and lime juice over the fish and place a slice of onion on each fillet.  Cover and refrigerate for 2-4 hours.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Remove fish from the refrigerator and pour off about 3/4 of the liquid.  Leave the onion slices in the dish and place a thick slice of lemon each fish fillet.  Sprinkle with oregano and black pepper to taste.  Place a pat of butter or margarine on each fillet.

Bake, covered, at 350 degrees for about 20 to 30 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.  Be careful not to overcook the fish or it will be be dry.  Serve with the cooked onion and lemon slices. Yumm and so good for you!
