Crispy Tarragon Baked Mahi-Mahi

Crispy Tarragon Baked Mahi-Mahi


Serves 4 (serving size: 1 fillet)

The secret to keeping this baked mahi-mahi fillet really tender? It’s the mayonnaise mixture (we suggest canola mayo, which is high in heart-healthy fats without any sat fat). And the tarragon-lime crust has a nice crispy contrast with a pop of herb and citrus freshness. Serve this low-carb, high-protein entrée over your favorite greens or salad.


  • Cooking spray
  • 1/3 cup canola mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped shallot (from 1 small [1/2 oz.] shallot)
  • 4 (6-oz.) skinless mahi-mahi fillets
  • 1/4 cup panko (Japanese-style breadcrumbs)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest (from 1 lime)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
