Serves: 4
  • 1 pound Mahi Mahi fillets about 3-4 fillets, about 1 inch thick
  • Salt
  • ¼ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
  • 2 Lemons
  • 4 Garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 8 sprigs fresh Thyme
  • ¼ cup Fresh Cilantro and/or Parsley loosely packed, chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Pat fish dry with a paper towel and generously season all over with salt.
  3. Pour 2 tablespoon olive oil in baking dish large enough to fit the fillets in one layer; tilt the dish to evenly coat.
  4. Thinly slice 1½ lemons, remove any seeds, and set aside the remaining half. Place the lemon slices in the dish, overlapping slightly if needed, and top with garlic and herb sprigs.
  5. Lay the fillets in the dish, drizzle with remaining olive oil, and bake until the fish is opaque and flakes easily, 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with chopped herbs, squeeze remaining lemon half over the top, and serve in shallow bowls with the cooked lemon slices and broth that accumulates.
