Garlic Butter  Mahi Mahi


4 people


25 minutes



– 2 small lemons – 4 (4-6 oz each) mahi-mahi fillets – salt – Ground black pepper – 2 tablespoons olive oil – 2 cloves garlic, minced – 4 tablespoons unsalted butter – 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

Step 1

Cut one lemon in half and squeeze out the juice into a bowl. Cut another small lemon into slices. Set both the lemon juice and lemon slices aside.

Step 2

Rinse the mahi-mahi fillets with cold water, and pat dry with paper towels. Season the mahi-mahi fillets with salt and black pepper on both sides.

Step 3

Heat the skillet (or nonstick frying pan) with olive oil on medium heat. Add the mahi-mahi fillets to the skillet, and cook them for 5 minutes on each side. Flip the fillets over gently and cook them until both sides are golden brown and cooked through. Let rest on a plate.

Step 4

In the same skillet, add lemon juice, garlic, and a pinch of salt. Reduce the heat to medium-low and constantly stir until aromatic.

Step 5

Add lemon slices and butter to the skillet; keep stirring the sauce until butter melts. Transfer the mahi-mahi fillets to the skillet, and cook for an extra 1 to 2 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the fillets to get more flavors.

Step 6

Turn off the heat, and serve the dish immediately with chopped fresh parsley sprinkled on top.
