This is a mild, Asian-inspired marinade that complements the mild flavor of Mahi Mahi. Great summer dish, I'm sure it would be good on any mild fish. OAMC chefs, double or triple the marinade as needed and freeze in family-sized portions - I use my vacuum sealer. **As with many of my original recipes, the ingredient amounts are approximate. Adjust to your preferences. As always, let me know if you make any substitutions or tweaks - I always like new ways to try old favorites! (Cooking time does not include marinating time.)
- 2 lbs mahi mahi fillets (4 medium)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced (I use jarred)
- 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons dry red wine
- 1⁄8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (more or less to taste)
- salt and pepper
- In a 1 gallon zipper bag, combine all ingredients except fish. Squish to combine. Add mahi and seal, refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.
- OAMC - squeeze all air out of zipper bag, or seal in a vacuum sealer and store in the freezer. Defrost and grill, following instructions below.
- Spray grill with non-stick cooking spray, the preheat to 475°F Cook fillets about 4 minutes on the first side, then turn and cook another 2-3 minutes, depending on thickness. Trust yourself on the grill, based on the thickness of your fillets - don't blindly use my timing! An overcooked fish is a sad fish.
WOW! This was outstanding. I did leave out the cayenne as the kiddos were having it with us for dinner. It was "delicious" (as my husband said.) My fillets started out frozen and I just added them to the marinade. I marinaded them for 5 hours in the fridge - mine cooked in about 4 minutes! GO GATORS! Thanks, Bek!
This was SO GOOD!! I made it exactly as the recipe said and I let it marinade for 4 hours. My fish was a little on the small side, so I grilled it 4 minutes first side and only about a minute and a half on the second side. Perfect! Great taste, very mild glaze. My husband said he was worried the glaze would be too thick, but it wasn't! Will definitely be making this again!!
Being from Hawaii, I'm always looking for good mahi mahi recipes. I made this tonight with just a couple of changes. I left out the cayenne (I'm not a hot person) and replaced the red wine with balsamic vinegar (didn't have any wine). It was awesome! Definitely a re-do in my book!
