Flaky mahi mahi filets topped with a tangy sauce that's simple to prepare!

You'll Need:

  • 6  4-ounce mahi filets
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 Tbsp white flour
  • 1 Cup chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp capers with juice
  • Parsley for Garnish

To Prepare:

Lightly salt and pepper mahi to taste.  Over medium heat, sauté filets in olive oil 2-3 minutes per side, turning once.  Set aside.

In the same saucepan, add butter.  Over medium heat, sauté garlic 1-2 minutes until fragrant.  Slowly add in flour and cook, stirring, until it turns light brown (about 3 minutes).  Whisk in the chicken broth, lemon juice and capers.  Simmer over medium heat until the sauce thickens slightly.

Did you know? 

Capers are unopened buds that grow on the limbs of the small flowering caper bush.  The caper bush grows in many places, but is commonly seen growing wild along the Mediterranean coast.
