Try Something New: Honey Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

My family has never been a fish eating kind of family. We are good with shrimp…and that’s about it. Some of us are branching out in an effort to either try something new or eat healthier. My sister has a great Apple Horseradish Glazed Salmon. I love a good blackened tilapia. Any shrimp doused in garlic butter will make the entire family happy. We recently tried mussels too – You are going to love that story, maybe later this week. But again…it’s time to branch out. This is my first attempt at stepping out of the comfort zone and trying something new. What better fish to cross over with than mahi mahi. It is mild and flaky and it takes on the flavors of your sauce or marinade. A perfect match for me! 

This fish dish has a lot of flavor with fresh ginger, salty soy and the sweet hint of honey. Make sure to give the fish some time to marinate as it will just take on more flavor and looks great on a plate. I hope you enjoy!
