Seared Mahi Mahi with Zesty Basil Butter

I found this on the Food Network. It sounds like an excellent recipe!

Seared Mahi Mahi with Zesty Basil Butter

9 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 1/2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 large garlic clove, finely chopped
3/4 teaspoon salt, plus additional for seasoning
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus additional for seasoning
4 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
9 tablespoons olive oil
12 (6 to 8-ounce) mahi mahi fillets (or similar fish)

Zesty Basil Butter:

Combine the butter, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper, and basil in a medium saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring until the butter melts. Cover and keep warm over low heat.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season the fish with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook the fish for 3 minutes; then turn and cook until just opaque, about 3 to 4 minutes more. Transfer the fillets to individual plates.

Spoon the warm basil butter over the fish and serve.
