Full Answer

To prepare mahi mahi according to the Food Network recipe, start by making basil butter. Gently cook and stir 3 tablespoons butter, 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves, 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice and 1 finely chopped garlic clove in a saucepan and then add salt and pepper to taste. Season 4 mahi mahi fillets with salt and pepper. Cook the fish for approximately three minutes on each side with 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet until the flesh turns opaque. Serve the fillets on individual plates with warm basil butter on top.

Follow the Epicurious recipe by lining a pan with greased foil or parchment paper. Place 4 mahi mahi fillets skin side down on the pan. Season the fish with 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Combine 1/2 cup of mayonnaise, 1/4 cup of crumbled feta, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, 3 tablespoons of chopped fresh mint and 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh dill.

Smooth this mixture on top of the fillets before crowning each one with 2 thin slices of lemon. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil over the lemon slices. Broil the fish for approximately 15 minutes or until the flesh is cooked through.
