Ingredients:

4 6 -ounce skinless mahi mahi fillets (about 3/4 inch thick)
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 head cauliflower, florets cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
Lemon wedges, for serving

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Season the fish with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the fish until golden brown on one side, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet, cooked-side up, and roast in the oven until just cooked through, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt the remaining 3 tablespoons butter in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add the cauliflower and cook, stirring, until golden brown and crisp-tender, about 6 minutes. Add the almonds, raisins, coriander, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste; cook until the almonds are golden, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice and parsley.

Divide the fish among plates and serve with the cauliflower and lemon wedges.
