Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

This recipe is delicious and easy! For a slightly healthier fish bake the mahi-mahi, because that works too. Read More

YUMMY!!! I boiled the sauce and put more over fish. I grilled by putting double layer of tin foil on grill and forming a boat by folding up side. Grilled for exactly 8 mins, this method works for any fish and keeps it from sticking. No need to even flip the fish just shut the lid and leave for 8 mins. This works for any fish less then 1 inch thick. I also used frozen Mahi Mahi from Sams and let completely defrost. Read More

Really, Really, Really good stuff. The only change was dried ginger instead of the fresh (didn't have any on hand). I also added just a bit more honey after. I baked the fish instead of pan frying (for the health factor) and reduced the sauce in a pan and poured over the fish. Really liked how this turned out. Thanks for the post. Read More

Loved this recipe overall!!! Once I get a feel for the main recipe, I like to play with the ingredients. My adjustments to your already great sauce are for personal preference only: 2 T. balsamic vinegar, 2 t. freshly grated ginger, 1 t. fresh key/Mexican lime or Meyers lemon juice (sweeter than regular lime or lemon juice). As a variation, I add a smidgeon (1/8 t.+/-) of garlic/chili sauce (can be found in Asian food section of most grocery stores) because we enjoy a little heat. To highlight the fish, I usually serve it over a fluffy rice, flecked with bits of color such as minced cilantro, mint, or parsley, grated carrot or citrus peel and add a bright green veggie such as asparagus, green beans, or broccoli.

I've made this a few times now and I've made a couple changes to suit our tastes. I doubled the ginger and garlic. I placed the fish and marinade in a casserole dish, let it sit in the fridge 20 mins, then put the casserole dish in the over and baked it for 20 mins at 400. It's good pan-fried too, but baking it cooks it evenly so it stays juicy and really soaks up the marinade. Also I find the oil spits and makes a huge mess when made in the pan. Delish and no mess after! Read More

OMG!! This is incredible! I am eating it right now as I am rating it. I scaled it down to 2 portions and used the frozen mahi mahi filets from Costco. I also used dried ginger as I didn't have the fresh. I will be making this often. Thanks for the post!! Read More

I just have to say that if anyone rated this below 4 stars they did not prepare it correctly. (also unfair to rate recipes poorly because you burned it) I found the directions and all the ingredients perfect! This made a fabulous mahi salad. I used the glaze as the dressing over a medley of lettuce, yellow bell peppers, red onion and fresh broccoli. The best tasting 6 WW points I ever ate. Thanks Diana! Read More

We really enjoyed this. I grilled the Mahi Mahi rather than pan frying and it was superb. The marinade/glaze is definately versatile enough to be used on shrimp, chicken, pork, and even beef. Read More

This was fabulous!!!! I am still thinking about it four days later. Even my kids and husband who do not like fish, loved this dish. I used crystallized ginger instead of fresh and it turned out perfect. Served with a sauteed mixture of green beans, sugar snap peas and mushrooms. Placed the mahi mahi on top of the veggies. Also used the frozen mahi mahi available at Sams Club. Read More
