Garlicky Lemon Mahi-Mahi

1 people

This easy mahi-mahi recipe comes together in 30 minutes or less. After searing the fish for a few minutes per side, make a super simple lemon butter sauce with garlic. We like to sauté some asparagus too, but adding a vegetable isn't necessary. 


  1. 3 tbsp. butter, divided

  2. 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  3. 4 (4-oz.) mahi-mahi fillets

  4. Kosher salt

  5. Freshly ground black pepper

  6. 1lb Asparagus

  7. 3 cloves garlic, minced

  8. 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

  9. 1 lemon, sliced

  10. Zest and juice of 1 lemon

  11. 1 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley, plus more for garnish
