I love delicious fish recipes and let me just tell you, this easy baked mahi mahi recipe is one of our absolute favorites! I love that it comes together in a snap and always is a hit when I serve it. The fish is perfectly cooked with parchment and is absolutely bursting with flavor!

I start with mahi mahi filets and one of my absolute favorite kitchen tools, my rimmed baking sheets! I use the heck out of those things! I place the mahi mahi filets on the the rimmed baking sheet and then drizzled with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and black pepper. I then place a piece of parchment paper over the fish, making sure the fish is completely covered by it.

Then, I pop the fish into the oven for about 20 minutes. While the fish is cooking, I prepare the pineapple blueberry salsa and the avocado crema to serve with my mahi mahi.

For the pineapple blueberry salsa, I dice my onion, jalapeno, tomatoes, and pineapple and combine them in a bowl with my fresh blueberries and a little lime juice. You can easily make this salsa ahead of time and store in the refrigerator tightly covered for up to a day or so, if you’d like.

For the avocado crema, you’ll either want to use it immediately or make sure to place plastic wrap tightly on the surface and store in the refrigerator for only an hour or so.

Once the fish is cooked, I remove it from the oven and serve it with a side salad, a healthy drizzle of the avocado crema and a few spoonsful of the pineapple blueberry salsa. Another fun spin on this recipe is to serve it as fish tacos. Oh my heavens, so delicious either way.

  1. Now that is a colorful dish that looks delicious as well. Sounds like a perfect dish for a hot summer meal.

  2. Why do you put the parchment paper over the fish?

    • Hi Carol,
      I have found that it helps the fish to not brown and become overly dry around the edges while baking. It is a bit different than completely enclosing the fish in parchment as that method steams the fish as it cooks.

  3. Robyn,
    I didn’t grow up where fresh fish was abundant, therefore don’t have the know how most people have.
    I have fresh snapper and fresh grouper in my freezer given by my very generous neighbor. Could I use either one of these instead mahi mahi? If not do you have recipes I could use for this fish?

    • Hi Betty,
      You absolutely can use either of these two in this recipe in place of the mahi mahi. I hope you enjoy it. (And what a sweet neighbor you have!!!) xo

  4. This looks delish! Blueberries in a salsa, never would have thought about it, but wow it looks amazing.
