  • Arrange the mahi mahi fillets in the prepared baking pan. Pour lemon juice over the fillets, and sprinkle with thyme and basil. Top each fillet with pineapple. Pour milk into the pan, not directly on the fish.

  • Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Update: still 4stars, 12 yrs later (2018) - made it again and now have measurements ;). Hubby liked overall. Not family fave, but still good in general with modifications: 1 tsp of basil, 1/2 tsp of thyme, 1 tbps minced onion, 2 tbps of parm cheese, 1 clove garlic, 1 cup lemon juice, pineapple juice, pepper to taste - all as marinade for 20 minutes (I did for 2 filets). For any novices like me - as fyi when I say marinade - in bag for 20 mins, sauce was not put into the oven with fish. Only added the milk/pineapple for the oven. -- 2006 review below: I really enjoyed, but I did alter quite a bit. Didn't use measurements, but thought I would at least list what I put in... black pepper, garlic, minced onion, basil, parm cheese, 1 cp lemon juice, pineapple juice. All mixed in bag and marinated the fish in it for 20 mins before baking. Added milk as directions stated, and pineapple tidbits on top. I really enjoyed, a lot of flavor and wasn't too much lemon. :-) Read More

I changed this up to no milk and a 1/4 cup of lemon juice. I also dumped my pineapple juice on to cook with it. It was okay i probably would add garlic next time. Read More

This was a good recipe with a few modifications. I used 2 tsp of each herb and the drained pineapple juice to marinate the fish. This intensified the flavors. Read More

I have been trying to incorporate more fish into my diet so tried this recipe. I used less lemon juice and milk and still turned out pretty moist. I liked the thyme and basil combination. Read More

This recipe was good but lacked flavor. I might try this without the pineapple and try a lemon pepper version of this. Read More

my girlfriend and i liked this recipe. we took some of the suggestions and marinated the fish in the pineapple and lemon juice for about twenty minutes. dont think that i will use the milk the next time it just seemed like there was no need for curdled milk. Read More

This did not turn out well at all for me. I would recommend using only a 1/2 cup of lemon juice opposed to the full 2 cups. Once you get past the strong lemon flavor it wasn't too bad. Read More

The dish was the tastiest Mahi Mahi I have tasted (1st time cooking it though). I did find that there was too much lemon juice as it drowned the fish and added to cooking time by almost double at 350. Pineapple evened out the lemon. Good dish will make it again with tweaking. Read More

Followed SMILIE224's suggestions as well and added pepper minced onion minced garlic Parmesan cheese pineapple juice and 1 cup of lemon juice. Used 5 fish filets 3 mahi mahi and 2 ahi tuna. We also omitted the milk. The lemon flavor was still strong even though it was diluted by the pineapple juice and used less than the recipe called for. I can't imagine how bad it would have been if we'd followed the recipe as written. I can see why it only has 3 stars overall. I would give this recipe 4 stars with the adjustments I made. I normally at least try to make a recipe as written so I can give it a proper review but this one just seemed like a fail from the get-go. Was a good base though. Read More
