Accidental Fish

Dish Description
This is one of my family’s favorite fish recipes for southern cooking. Serve over rice. Steamed vegetables go great with this dish.
  • 2 (4 ounce) fillets mahi mahi
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 drops Louisiana-style hot sauce, or to taste
  • 1 roma tomato, seeded and chopped (optional)
  • 1 green onion, chopped

  • Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  • Rub the mahi mahi fillets with the olive oil and lay into a baking dish.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 20 minutes.
  • While the mahi mahi bakes, melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • 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.
