Ingredients

  • 2 (4 ounce) fillets mahi mahi

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • ½ 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

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.
