Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Standard

mahi

A sweet and sour sensation!! Mahi mahi (dolphinfish) is low in fat and packed with minerals, vitamins and protein. It has a naturally sweet taste that lends itself perfectly to this recipe. Although the recipe calls for you to fry the fish, I prefer to bake or grill as a healthier option. Bake at 450 F for 15 – 20 minutes in the marinade. Would be great in a Mahi salad — use cooled glaze as a dressing over fresh veggies! Easy, delicious and full of flavor.


GINGER GLAZED MAHI MAHI (Serves 4)

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 (6 ounce) mahi mahi fillets
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Directions

  1. In a shallow glass dish, stir together the honey, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, ginger, garlic and olive oil. Season fish fillets with salt and pepper, and place them into the dish. If the fillets have skin on them, place them skin side down. Cover, and refrigerate for 20 minutes to marinate.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove fish from the dish, and reserve marinade. Fry fish for 4 to 6 minutes on each side, turning only once, until fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove fillets to a serving platter and keep warm.
  3. Pour reserved marinade into the skillet, and heat over medium heat until the mixture reduces to a glaze consistently. Spoon glaze over fish, and serve immediately.
