  • Air fryer



  • Pat the mahi mahi dry on both sides. Cover the mahi mahi with the olive oil.
  • In a small bowl, mix the paprika, salt, garlic powder and ground black pepper together.
  • Then, gently rub the spices onto the mahi mahi filets.
  • Place the mahi mahi filets in your air fryer basket. Air fry the mahi mahi on 400 degrees F for 10 minutes, or until the mahi mahi reaches an internal temperature of 137F.



  • If your mahi mahi comes frozen from the grocery store, be sure to defrost it in the refrigerator before cooking. If it comes in a package, leave it in the package while it defrosts so it doesn’t leak.
  • This spice blend is a great option if you pan on eating the mahi mahi as your main meal with a side of roasted vegetables. You can also use taco seasoning in its place to make mahi mahi tacos.
  • The fish is done when the flesh turns opaque and easily flakes with a fork.
  • Pro Tip: This recipe can be made in the air fryer unit with a basket or the air fryer oven. If you are using the air fryer oven, use the middle rack and select the "Air Fry" function.
  • Pro Tip: Check your food as it cooks. Each air fryer runs a bit differently. Sometimes air frying is a trial and error process. Check your food as it cooks to learn your air fryer better!  When cooking a new recipe or food items be sure to check your food often to help avoid over/under cooking.
