Honey Ginger Mahi Mahi

This is one of the first fish recipes that I found that I loved! It is easy and delicious. I buy my Mahi Mahi at Costco. It comes in individually frozen fillets. This fish is extremely mild. I also used the same marinade for some chicken tenderloins- for those kids who don't want to even try the fish. It worked just as well.

We had this last night with Quinoa.(pronounced KEEN-WA) A very yummy grain that you might not have tried before. It is faster and easier to cook than rice. It has tons of protein and other great things in it.!! Try it out!! My kids LOVE it!

Honey Ginger Mahi Mahi-  (From

3 tbsp Honey
3 tbsp Soy Sauce
3 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1 tsp Fresh Ginger Root
1 cloves Garlic Clove
2 tsp Olive Oil
4 fillet Mahi Mahi Fillets
1 tbsp Oil, Canola

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.
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.
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.
