Blackened Mahi Mahi with Lemon Caper Butter Sauce

I've been trying to incorporate more fish in to our weekly rotation of meals. There are so many great health benefits from fish. It's a great thing to eat if you're trying to live healthier or lose weight. Our favorite types of fish are mahi, salmon, tuna and good ole' fresh water crappie. While meal planning this week I found a lost bag of frozen mahi filets in the back of the freezer. I love mahi, it's a very light, mild fish. I'm not a fan of fish that is "fishy" if you know what I mean. Using those once forgotten mahi filets I made the most delectable Blackened Mahi Mahi with Lemon Caper Butter Sauce. This recipe has me wanting to eat fish every night! Mild and flaky mahi paired with salty capers and fresh lemon juice creates the most delicious one pan dinner. Easy, full of flavor and ready in under 20 minutes.
