Baked Lemon Garlic Mahi Mahi with Tzatziki Recipe

I know I say this about all of the recipes, but seriously, this was fantastic!  I've been in a Greek mood for the past few days, so I threw this together the other night, and served it with the Greek couscous salad I made the other day.  

Baked Lemon Garlic Mahi Mahi with Tzatziki Recipe

Mahi Mahi Fillets (I had 9 oz)
8 tablespoons lemon juice
1 clove garlic, finely minced
Ground cumin
1 cup Greek yogurt
1 cucumber, shredded

1. Rinse the mahi mahi fillets and pat dry.
2. Place the fillets on tinfoil lined baking sheet.  Sprinkle three quarters of the minced garlic over the fillets.  Drizzle a few tablespoons over the fillets and sprinkle with pepper.  

3. Bake at 375° for 6 minutes.  Flip the fillets over, spooning some of the garlic onto the top.  Drizzle remaining lemon juice over the fillets, sprinkle with pepper and bake for another 4-6 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets.
4.  For the tzatziki, combine the Greek yogurt, shredded cucumber, the remaining portion of the minced garlic, and two tablespoons of lemon juice.  Do not strain the liquid from the cucumber, this will help to thin out the tzatziki.  Add ground cumin, salt, and pepper to taste.

To serve, spoon some of the tzatziki over the mahi mahi.  I plated mine with some of the Greek couscous salad I made the other day.
