Ginger-glazed Mahi Mahi

After eating a bit, my two-year-old said, “I like everything on my plate, Mom.”  That is a great compliment in our house!  We definitely will be making this recipe again!

Ginger-glazed Mahi Mahi
4 mahi-mahi fillets (1 ½ lbs. total)
3 T. brown sugar
2 T. honey
3 T. g/f soy sauce
3 T. balsamic vinegar
¾ t. freshly grated ginger root
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 t. olive oil
¼ t. salt
¼ t. pepper
In a mixing bowl, stir together brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, ginger, garlic, and olive oil.  Season fish fillets with salt and pepper and place them in freezer bag.  Pour marinade over fish and freeze.
When ready to serve, allow fillets to thaw completely.  Reserve marinade.  Grill fillets over medium heat for 4-6 minutes per side turning only once.  I did it on an indoor grilling pan following the same time and heat instructions and they turned out great that way too.
While fish is grilling, pour marinade into sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium heat.  Boil addition 2 minutes until reduces to glaze consistency.  Spoon over cooked fish and serve immediately with rice and a green vegetable.
** For the rice, I used Archer Farms (Target’s brand) Whole Grain Medley.  I diced up two carrots and sauteed them with onion and garlic in butter.  Then, I added 1 cup of the medley, and 1 1/2 cups chicken broth, brought it to a boil, and then simmered covered for 25 minutes.  It paired nicely, was full of fiber and whole grain, and even had some hidden carrots in there!
