I always start to crave lighter meals when the weather starts getting warmer. And Mahi Mahi is a perfect solution to a light and healthy meal. It is such a mild but filling protein, and with only 90 cal per 3oz serving, it fits well into any healthy lifestyle.

Air Frying Mahi Mahi, is a simple and quick way to prepare it without adding excess oil and fat. A lemony Greek yogurt mixture is used in this recipe to add moisture and to create a way to adhere Panko breadcrumbs for a crispy crust without adding a lot of calories.

Pair this fish with any fresh salad for a light and healthy meal!

Panko crusted Mahi Mahi filets are a crispy and satisfying meal without the added calories of frying.

Spread Greek yogurt mixture on each filet in order for panko bread crumbs to stick to the fish.

Panko bread crumbs help create a crunchy coating without having to fry the fish.

Air-fryer Mahi Mahi pairs perfectly with a refreshing salad!
