2.Transfer fish to a warm plate. Strain solids from steaming liquid. Combine steaming liquid, butternut squash and butter in a blender. Puree until smooth. Season. Serve butternut puree alongside steamed fish and garnish with watercress.

Steamed fish is fast, easy and delicious. It takes less than 30 minutes from refrigerator to plate and you need just two dishes to cook the fish and make the sauce in this Steamed Mahi Mahi recipe.
