Easy Perfect Mahi Mahi Recipe

Crispy Garlic Parmesan Salmon Is Sure To Leave Your Taste Buds Happy

Mahi Mahi, otherwise known as Dorado, is a deservedly popular fish. When done right, mahi mahi is tender, flaky, and deliciously flavorful. This lemon garlic butter sauce is sensational. 

I grew up in a family that often dished up fish for dinner. Any given weeknight, we would sit down to a meal that included fresh cooked fish. My parents served up all varieties of fish, from whole fish to fillets. They used all methods of cooking with their fish recipes, from braised to pan fried.

Maybe some of you are just trying to wrap your taste buds around the idea of whole braised fish. For reals, when done right, it’s stunningly delicious.

As a child, I naively thought everyone adored at least some fish. Alas, one [gray] day I discovered that was far from truth. (Pssst: I’ve been kinda secretly convinced that it must be because some haven’t found their perfect fish recipe just yet.)


Honey Glazed Salmon

Crispy Garlic Parmesan Salmon Is Sure To Leave Your Taste Buds Happy

The easiest, most flavorful salmon you will ever make. And that browned butter lime sauce is to die for!

I’m always intimidated to cook with salmon. It’s one of those temperamental ingredients that can be completely undercooked or overcooked. But with Wolf’s dual fuel range, you’ll be able to cook the perfect salmon right at home – wonderfully crisp and seared on the outside and completely cooked through to perfection on the inside.

Wolf dual fuel ranges feature the best of two worlds – gas cooking topside and an electric oven with dual convection below, ideal for cooking salmon.

Now I’ve tried the pan-fried method on several occasions but the salmon either ends up too overcooked on the outside or completely raw on the inside.

So by searing it first, you’ll get that amazingly crisp exterior, crusted with a sweet honey glaze. Once that’s done, you can pop it right in the oven to let it completely cook through.

Wolf dual convection also produces more uniform heating than a single convection fan can deliver.

Wolf ovens, including the oven in the dual fuel range, include two convection fans that work to ensure air and heat is circulated evenly throughout the oven cavity – no hot or cold spots – meaning your food turns out completely evenly cooked. So your fish will always be cooked through without overcooking it. Amazing, right?

And once you top it off with the browned butter lime sauce – well, I won’t be the one to judge if you start guzzling down the sauce first. It’s absolutely heavenly, and the perfect complement to the honey crusted salmon. It’s so good, we made this recipe three times already just this week!

Honey Glazed Salmon

10 minutes20 minutes

Chungah Rhee

  • 4 salmon filets
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Zest of 1 lime

For the browned butter lime sauce

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. To make the browned butter lime sauce, melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

    Cook, whisking constantly, until the foam subsides and the butter begins to turn a golden brown, about 3 minutes. Stir in garlic, honey and lime juice, salt and pepper, to taste; set aside.

  3. Season salmon with salt and pepper, to taste. Dredge each salmon filet with 1 tablespoon flour and drizzle with 1 tablespoon honey.

  4. Heat olive oil in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. Working in batches, add salmon to the skillet and sear both sides until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes per side.
  5. Place into oven and bake until completely cooked through, about 8-10 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately with browned butter lime sauce and lime zest, if desired.

Cowboy Butter Baked Salmon

Crispy Garlic Parmesan Salmon Is Sure To Leave Your Taste Buds Happy

Watch me make this Cowboy Butter Salmon from start to finish!

My husband would probably pass up his favorite Israeli meal of garlic couscous, Israeli salad and rosemary roasted rack of lamb for this cowboy butter salmon. Paired with some roasted potatoes and asparagus, it makes one hearty, flavorful meal. And thank heavens and Moses it’s way easier (and quicker) than a roasted rack of lamb!

Cowboy Butter is the brainchild of The Pioneer Woman. Don’t you just love Ree Drummond and her smiley, happy face? I can’t help but smile when I watch her.

She makes a lot of “cowboy friendly” dishes and cowboy butter has become a favorite in our house! I make it a bit differently to suit my families taste buds, but we’re still going to call it cowboy butter because my gosh, I really love the sound of it.

This cowboy butter is garlicky, tangy and spicy! Taste as you go and tweak it to your liking if desired. I decided to leave out the lemon juice that many cowboy butter recipes called for. I wasn’t too fond of how butter and lemon juice separated.  This butter is so full of herbs and seasonings.

I used dried herbs in this recipe but I’m sure fresh would give it an even bolder flavor! And salmon, bless its heart, needs all the character and boldness it can get, IMO. I’ve had cowboy butter on chicken and steak, but there is just something about it on salmon! It just soaks in all of that buttery goodness and is downright addictive!

Garnish it well and don’t forget to add a side of cowboy butter! You’ll want to slather this butter on with every bite!

  • 12 oz wild-caught salmon room temperature, washed and dried
  • olive oil about 2 teaspoons
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons sweet cream unsalted butter softened
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoons thyme ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • Line a baking sheet with foil paper. (I used an oiled grill pan)
  • In a bowl, combine cowboy butter ingredients.
  • Remove about 2 tablespoons of the cowboy butter and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, mix together seasoning mix.
  • Place salmon on baking sheet and coat very lightly in olive oil (top and bottom)
  • Sprinkle seasoning mix evenly over salmon (top and bottom).
  • Pat on half of the reserved cowboy butter.
  • Bake salmon on middle rack for 6 minutes (or until halfway done)
  • Remove from oven and brush salmon generously with remaining reserved cowboy butter.
  • Return to oven and bake for another until the fish flakes very easily with a fork (do not overcook or salmon will be dry. My thin fillets only needed 5 more minutes)
  • When fish comes the oven, garnish with parsley, paprika, red pepper flakes and fresh lemon zest.
  • Serve salmon with the remaining cowboy butter on the side.

If you have time, let the cowboy butter sit overnight for the BEST flavor.Feel free to double the spice and butter mixture if desired.

Baking times will vary depending on how thick your salmon is. Mine was thin and cooked perfectly in 11 minutes. Perfectly cooked salmon is moist and flakes very easily with a fork.
