  • 4 (6 ounce) mahi mahi fillets

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • cooking spray

  • cup butter


  1. Preheat an air fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Season mahi mahi fillets with salt and pepper and spray with cooking spray on both sides. Place fillets in the air fryer basket, making sure to leave space in between.

  3. Cook in the preheated air fryer until fish flakes easily with a fork and has a golden hue, about 12 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat; bring to a simmer and cook until butter turns frothy and a rich brown color, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

  5. Transfer fish fillets to a plate and drizzle with brown butter.
