Maureen Sullivan Romagnoli


For the Lemon Garlic Mixture:
2 Tbsp. salted butter, softened to room temp
1 Tbsp. freshly chopped chives or parsley
2 Tbsp. garlic cloves, minced
⅛ tsp. kosher salt
╝ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 Tbsp. juice from fresh lemon
1 Tbsp. grated lemon peel

For the Fish:
2 Tbsp. olive oil
4 (1-inch thick each) Mahi Mahi fillets, 4 oz. each
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

[Note: Use kosher salt, if at all possible, and not table salt, because fine salt is much saltier. If you use table salt, cut the amount in half.]

Preheat the oven to 400║ with rack in the middle position.
In a small pan, combine all the Lemon Garlic Mixture ingredients and stir to fully combine. Set aside.
Use some paper towel to pat-dry all excess moisture from the fish fillets.
Sprinkle both sides of the fillets evenly with pinches of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Set aside.
In a large, oven-proof pan, heat the olive oil over high heat. Once the oil is sizzling hot, add the fish fillets to pan and let cook until browned on one side, about 3 minutes (do not move fish around much.)
Carefully flip the fish fillets on to the other side, then turn off the stove burner, and immediately transfer the pan into an already-heated oven. Let the fish cook about 5 minutes or just until the top is golden and the center is cooked through. Take care not to overcook.
A minute before the fish is done cooking in the oven, sautÚ a small pan of the prepared lemon-garlic mixture over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, just until the mixture is melted and bubbly. Immediately turn the heat off and pour the mixture over the cooked fish.
