Mahi Mahi with Cilantro Butter



Simple and healthy – my kind of dinner! It’s important not to overcook the fish, but other than that, this is very easy.


1 lb. mahi mahi fillets

1/4 t. salt

1/4 t. cumin

1/8 t. red pepper flakes

1/2 lemon

2 T. butter, melted

2 T. chopped fresh cilantro

1/2 t. grated lemon rind


Combine salt, cumin, and red pepper flakes in a bowl. Sprinkle this over both sides of the fish.

In another bowl, melt the butter. Add the cilantro, lemon rind, and salt and mix well. Set aside until ready to use.

Heat a frying pan. Add some olive oil. When the pan is hot, place the fish in it. Cook it for about 4 minutes and turn over. Cook for another 4 minutes, or until the fish is done.

Serve the fish, topped with the cilantro/butter sauce. Squeeze some lemon juice over all of it.
