Mahi Mahi and Southwestern Succotash

In this zesty update on succotash we’ve added crumbled feta and a spicy Southwestern kick of cayenne pepper and cumin — and done away with the controversial lima bean. In its place you’ll find edamame, adding a bright green pop to the dish. Almost everyone likes edamame, and they’re easy to find: You can get cooked and shelled edamame from our salad bar or in the frozen section.

Succotash makes for an easy weeknight meal because you can cut the vegetables as you go, and by the time they're prepped, it's time to add them to the pan. We’ve used mahi mahi here because its sturdy white flesh and mild flavor are the perfect backdrop for the colorful succotash, but you can sub in any fish you like.

Our tip: For a heartier meal, round out the plate with our tender Garlic-Braised Brussels Sprouts.
