The hubby and I found some mahi mahi at the grocery store the other day and wanted to try a new recipe. Actually, the only other time we have had this type of fish was when we were in Hawaii and it was delicious there. So he found a recipe on allrecipes.com that sounded good. I took some pictures while we were cooking, since it was something different. I might start doing this for now on, whenever we make a new unique recipe, and post the recipe and pictures. (only if it’s a good recipe of course, and this was!) It’s something different than what I usually post. So here is my very first recipe blog!
Ginger-Glazed Mahi Mahi (with vegetable fried rice and egg rolls)
3 tablespoons honey 2 teaspoons olive oil
3 tablespoons soy sauce 4 (6 oz) mahi mahi fillets
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar salt & pepper to taste
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (we used olive oil)
1 clove garlic, crushed or to taste
We just used one big fillet and cut it into 3 pieces
||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.
While the mahi mahi marinated, we decided to start our fried rice. This is really my husband’s creation. I already had started some rice in our rice cooker so it would be ready. I chopped up a red bell pepper and small onion into large pieces.
We start by getting a wok really hot and putting some bacon grease in it. Once it’s melted, scramble an egg and throw in until it is done. Take it out and throw in the onions and peppers with some sesame oil. Fry those until tender and add some frozen peas and carrots. Once all the vegetables are done, add the rice and egg. Add soy sauce and ginger, etc to taste. This is what you will have:
Also, we decided to throw a couple egg rolls into the deep fryer. (Yeah, I know that’s REALLY healthy.) I like to buy the ingredients and make a bunch at one time and freeze them. This is much cheaper than buying them at the store and you always have them in your freezer.

OK, back to the fish.
||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.
Bon appetit! Did I spell that right??
