Quick and Easy fish recipe

When I can find fresh fish marked "wild caught" at the supermarket, I try to snap it up.  Yesterday, I got lucky and found a pack of mahi mahi.  My luck held out through the effort of googling for a recipe, when I found this one quickly and had all the ingredients handy.  Now how often does that happen?  This was truly the tastiest fish I've ever served, and was perfect alongside quinoa, corn on the cob, and buttered artisan bread slices for my family.  This only took about 35 minutes, start to finish.

Note:  I substituted organic Tamari for the soy sauce due to my wheat intolerance and had to skip the corn and bread for myself. 

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi


  • 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 (6 ounce) 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 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.
