    GARLIC BUTTER DIPPING SAUCE

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut fillets into 2 inch chunks and drizzle with the lemon juice.
    2. 2
      Pour the beer into the bottom of a saucepan (if using fresh lemon juice, toss the leftover lemon rind in with beer) and place a collapsible vegetable steamer over the beer.
    3. 3
      Bring the beer to a boil, place the fish chunks in the steamer, cover and steam for 5 to 10 minutes, dependent upon the thickness of the fish.
    4. 4
      The fish will be rubbery if it is overcooked.
    5. 5
      Meanwhile, heat the butter with the garlic and salt (I heat it slowly until the garlic is no longer raw).
    6. 6
      Remove the fish from the steamer and discard the beer/liquid/rind.
    7. 7
      Serve the fish chunks with the garlic butter dipping sauce.

      I could definitely see where this would have been totally awesome had I not overcooked the fish. They were dry but not rubbery. It would be great to add a tip on how to make sure not to overcook with this recipe.

      I made this to serve with a surf and turf. It was good and real easy to make, although not very flavorful. It not my favorite was to make Mahi Mahi, but it was the easiest. I marinated the fish in some Beer and lemon for about an hour. I used Heineken, and the fish was a wild caught, same day :) I'll make it again, . I cooked the butter till it was clear and garlic was soft and mushy
