{clean} Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Oh my word! If you say you don't like "fish", then you haven't tried enough types of fish. This fish is Ah-mazing! Mahi Mahi means "very strong" in Hawaii. I loved Hawaii and I love Mahi Mahi. Mahi Mahi has a delicate flavor that is almost sweet. WAY better than any chicken you will eat.  (And that's from the  mouth of my 8 year old)

This recipe pairs the Mahi Mahi with a sweet ginger glaze that makes it a huge hit in my family.  I found frozen, individually wrapped, WILD caught Mahi Mahi at Costco.  This type of fish is not cheap, but it is worth the cost (and it's wild caught). A bag will feed my family of four twice.

{clean} Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

  • 3 Tbps honey 
  • 3 Tbps soy sauce (I used Organic Tamari Gluten Free soy sauce)
  • 2 Tbps balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground ginger (or 1 Tbps fresh grated ginger)
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tsp {organic} Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 Mahi Mahi filets (4-6 ounces each)

1) In a shallow glass dish, whisk together the honey, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, ginger, lemon juice, garlic and olive oil. Season fish fillets with salt and pepper, and place them into the dish (flip to cover both sides). If the fillets have skin on them, place them skin side down. Cover, and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes to marinate.
2) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove fish from refrigerator and pour off most of the marinade into a small sauce pan.
3) Bake fish for 20 minutes (or until fish is white and flaky with fork)
4) Meanwhile, over medium heat, simmer marinade until reduced to a glaze. 
5) Once fish is cooked, drizzle glaze over fish. Serve.
