Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Good evening bloggers! Welcome to another edition of Everyday Meals. I'm your host, Mandie. Tonight, we are going to be tackling Mahi Mahi. For those of you who aren't farmiliar with what Mahi Mahi is, here's a little background. Mahi Mahi (or as others may know it, commoon dolphinfish) is a ray-finned surface-dwelling fish. It can be found in most off-shor tropical, temperate, or subtropical waters around the world. The word "Mahi Mahi" literally means "very strong" in Hawaiian. Okay, now that you've been schooled on what Mahi Mahi is, let's get into the kitchen and start cooking!

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

You will need:

  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 mahi mahi fillets
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

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

I hope you all have a wonderful night. I will catch you on the flip side. Don't over eat and happy blogging to all! <3
