Garlicky Lemon Mahi-Mahi

I love fish. And I happened to have some Mahi-Mahi that I had been dying to cook along with some fresh asparagus. I did a quick google search to see if I could find something inspiring and voila – came across this recipe on

I loved this easy recipe because I basically was done cooking in about 30 minutes. Full of flavor and well, garlicky – I really loved it.

For the side, I steamed some asparagus and it really help tie everything together. You could also make some jasmine rice if you want a heavier carb for this dish.

Enjoy! 🤗

    3 tbsp. butter, divided
    2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    4 (4-oz.) mahi-mahi fillets
    Kosher salt
    Freshly ground black pepper
    1 lb. asparagus
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
    1 lemon, sliced
    Zest and juice of 1 lemon
    1 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley, plus more for garnish

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon each of butter and olive oil. Add mahi-mahi and season with salt and pepper. Cook until golden, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. 
  2. To skillet, add remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Add asparagus and cook until tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a plate.
  3. To skillet, add remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Once melted, add garlic and red pepper flakes and cook until fragrant, 1 minute, then stir in lemon, zest, juice, and parsley. Remove from heat, then return mahi-mahi and asparagus to skillet and spoon over sauce. 
  4. Garnish with more parsley before serving.
