How To Make blackened mahi mahi

  • 1
    Mix the smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, dried thyme, garlic powder, onion powder, ground black pepper, dried oregano, and salt in a small shallow bowl or plate.
  • 2
    Dry the mahi-mahi filets with paper towels. Rub 1 – 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil over the filets. Dredge the filets in the blackened seasoning. Discard any leftover seasoning.
  • 3
    Melt the butter and heat the remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the skillet is good and hot add the fillets and cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Flip and cook the other side until it is golden brown and the fish is cooked through and flakes easily.
