  • 1 Lb Mahi mahi fillets (about 4 fillets)
  • 1/2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 3/4 tsp Old Bay seasoning
  • Salt

For the lime butter

  • 2 Tbsp Butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/4 tsp Lime zest, packed
  • 1/2 tsp Fresh lime juice + additional for garnish
  • Pinch of salt


  • Rub the fish with the oil and then season with the Old Bay seasoning and some salt.
  • Place into the mesh basket of an air fryer and cook at 400 degrees for a 7-9. minutes, depending on the thickness of your fish. The internal temperature should be about 140 degrees. Remove from airfryer, cover and let rest 10 minutes to finish cooking (fish should be 145 degrees before eating, and cooking it like this prevents it from getting dry.)
  • While the fish sits, mix the butter with the lime zest and a pinch of salt. Stir in the lime juice.
  • Serve the fish with lime butter and optional extra squeeze of lime juice.
