  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, plus additional for seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, plus additional for seasoning
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 (6 to 8 oz) fillets mahi mahi


Zesty Basil Butter:


Combine the butter, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper, and basil in a medium saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring until the butter melts. Cover and keep warm over low heat.


Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season the fish with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook the fish for 3 minutes; then turn and cook until just opaque, about 3 to 4 minutes more. Transfer the fillets to individual plates.


Spoon the warm basil butter over the fish and serve.
