Mahi Mahi (sometimes called Dorado) is a delicious lean white fish that is tender, flaky, and full of flavor. This Mahi Mahi recipe coats the fish in an AMAZING lemon garlic butter sauce that adds the perfect balance of flavor to the fish.


  • 4 4oz Mahi Mahi filets
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt (to taste)
  • black pepper (to taste)

Lemon Garlic Sauce

  • 3 tbsp salted butter (softened)
  • 2 tbsp garlic (minced)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon peel (grated)
  • 1 tbsp fresh chives (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley (chopped)
  • kosher salt (pinch)
  • black pepper (pinch)


  • Preheat the oven to 375F. Pat dry any excess moisture off the fish fillet with paper towels until they are as dry as possible then sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Then, prepare the lemon garlic mixture. In a small saucepan on low heat, combine all of the lemon garlic mixture ingredients and set aside.
  • In a large skillet on high heat, add the olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the fish fillets to the pan and sear for about 3 minutes on one side then flip. Place the fish in a baking dish and roast for about 4-5 minutes. Pour the lemon garlic mixture over the cooked fish. Serve with extra lemon slices and fresh parsley.
