A mouth-watering take on a classic fish and chips, with Bats Fishing cooking up Mahi Mahi with a Mediterranean Twist.


  • Fresh Mahi Mahi – skinned and sliced into medium sized pieces
  • 1 x onion – diced
  • Butter
  • 1 x sliced lemon
  • Parsley


Step 1: Skin and slice your Mahi Mahi into medium size pieces. We’ve used four pieces in this recipe in a medium-sized frying pan.

Step 2: Add the butter to a medium-sized frypan and saute the onion until it starts to turn brown.

Step 3: Add the sliced lemon to the pan and place the Mahi Mahi on pieces on top of it. Sprinkle the parsley on top.

Step 4: Cook the fish on low heat for around five minutes on each side. The lemon should be browned and the fish should look white throughout.  Don’t overcook it otherwise it will go chewy.

Step 5: Once cooked, serve it up with plenty of fresh lemon juice alongside some chips and Greek Salad or your choice of side dishes.
