This Mahi Mahi with Roasted Pepper Butter Sauce is a delicious and light summer meal. The sauce is amazing – ao flavorful and goes wonderfully with any fish. You can serve it with rice, vegetables (some ideas – zucchini, broccoli, green beans) or with creamy mashed potatoes. (mashed cauliflower bake or roasted garlic cauliflower would work too to keep it low carb!)
You can easily make this Mahi Mahi with Roasted Pepper Butter Sauce Paleo or Whole30 by eliminating the butter or using a Paleo-friendly substitute.
I love that this can be done in about 30 minutes (10 minutes to prep and about 20 minutes or less to cook) and it’s so easy to make. No fancy ingredients, yet a nice looking dinner that the whole family will enjoy. It’s colorful, it’s quick and full of flavor! It’s light but satisfying meal for those warm summer days.
This meal is made in one pan – it’s an easy cleanup and it’s perfect for midweek dinner. Super easy with wonderful flavors!
