Air Fryer Mahi Mahi with Brown Butter

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"This is a super simple but super tasty fish dish. You'll want to check your fish halfway through to gauge how much more time you'll need to keep cooking, depending on the thickness of your fish."

  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 until fish flakes easily with a fork and has a golden hue, about 12 minutes.
  4. While fish is cooking, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Bring butter 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.

Excellent recipe! Bonus is that it is super simple. On the first batch I cooked it 4 minutes longer to get a good brown on it which resulted in overcooked fish. Shame on me. Don't make my mistak...
