Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

This is a great way to serve fish, it has TONS of good flavor and a great sauce that goes well over rice... you have to at least try it! For the record, it's one of my all-time favorite meals!

4 (6oz) Mahi Mahi Steaks ( I get 'em frozen at Trader Joe's)

Marinate ingredients:
3 TBSP honey
3 TBSP soy sauce
3 TBSP balsamic vinegar
1 tsp ginger (comes in a jar already pureed, at Trader's or any grocery store)
1 clove garlic
2 tsp olive oil

Mix all the "Marinate Ingredients" together in a shallow dish, season the mahi mahi steaks with a little s & p, then lay them in the dish to marinate for 15- 20 minutes in the fridge. When ready, put 1 TBSP olive oil in a frying pan and let it heat up, then lay the steaks in the pan and cook for 4-6 minutes over med.-high heat until they are slightly browned. Use the remaining juice that the steaks were marinating in- put it in a small sauce pan and let it cook over medium heat until until it reduces to a glaze. You will use this as your sauce to spoon over your fish. * For the record, mine never gets super "glazey" just so you know :)

Serve with: My favorite thing to serve over is a bed of brown rice. I put a serving of brown rice, a steak of fish, and then a few spoonfuls of the fabulous sauce on top of it all. I will also serve it with artichokes, asparagus, or a crisp, green salad.

So this meal graced my tummy last night . . . and again this afternoon with leftovers. I can't decide which experince was better. I reduced the sauce/glaze for a while and it got nice an thick with yumminess. Thanks! I even held out hope that my precious son would taste it since it smelled so good. No luck but at least I feel like a good mom for trying to feed him something healthful.

Tried it last night and it was delish! Alex even liked it (he's super picky) and although AJ wasn't a fan of the fish, he enjoyed the rice with the ginger sauce. Definite winner.
