This is one of my family's favorite fish recipes for southern cooking. Serve over rice. Steamed vegetables go great with this dish.

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Rub the mahi mahi fillets with the olive oil and lay into a baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 20 minutes.
  4. While the mahi mahi bakes, melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
  5. Stir the garlic, lemon juice, and hot sauce into the melted butter; simmer together for 1 minute. Add the tomato and green onion to the butter mixture; cook and stir until hot. Spoon over the baked fish to serve.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This fish was excellent! I did make a few changes though. I put a little bit of extra virgin olive oil on the fish and salt and pepper before baking it. I turned the broiler on for about 2 minutes after the 20 minutes was up. I used half the butter and did not add tomato to the sauce. Instead, I added extra lemon juice and fresh parsley. This recipe is certainly a keeper!!!

Awesome! I had cod on hand but made per recipe. Wow was it great. Fixed over steamed veggies. I have to admit it didn't sound so great with just a few ingredients but I was totally wrong. I did add a little more hot sauce and black pepper the second helping. Very easy to make. Like the commercial, I ate the whole thing myself. Keeper for sure. Thanks, Becca for sharing.

This is certainly a wonderful dish, easy to prepare, little cleanup, and not overly filling. Rice as a side dish and a green salad or coleslaw add just enough to complete the meal. I purchase my mahi-mahi frozen at Costco. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
