juice from 1 lime
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 mahi mahi fillets, skin off

Heat a cast-iron skillet or grill pa over medium-high. Using a paper towel, blot fish dry. Season both sides with salt and pepper.

When pan is hot, add vegetable oil, then gently add fish, working in batches if necessary.
