  • Preheat oven to 350..
  • Chop garlic, parsley, celery, and onion. Put aside.
  • Finely chop the mahi mahi. I bought mahi mahi pieces and chopped a few at a time.

  • Allow to sit 5 minutes.
  • Place parchment paper or foil down on cooking sheet. Spray with cooking oil.
  • Form palm sized burgers with your hands, squeezing the fish mixture together in your hand like you would a hamburger.
  • Place on parchment paper cookie sheet and bake 350 for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned on the outside.
  • Allow to cool 20 minutes before attempting to move, as these are fragile until cooled.
  • To serve, you can either heat these up in a skillet, to put a golden cruse on the outside or just serve them as on your favorite bun or salad.
