The last few weeks, dinners have been quick thrown together things. A lot of stirfry, chana saagwala, and fish + veg + grain. Also, I think we have eaten pancakes for dinner three times in as many weeks. This is one of the last really creative fish dishes I made. It is quick, easy, and a very un-boring take on our fish+veg+grain. I quickly sauteed broccoli and asparagus with garlic, a teeny bit of hoisen sauce, and lime juice and made black rice as sides.
Sweet & Spicy Thai Glazed Mahi Mahi
2 pieces mahi mahi, about 6 oz each*
1 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce (low sodium preferably)
1 1/2 Tbsp white wine
1 1/2 tsp sriracha
1 1/2 tsp honey
1 tsp finely minced garlic (~2 med cloves)
1/2 tsp sesame seeds
Combine all ingredients. Allow fish to marinade in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
Heat a little bit of veg oil in a non stick skillet over med heat. Let excess marinade fall off fish (do not discard). Cook fish about 5 min on the first side. Flip fish and pour excess marinade into pan. Let it bubble and reduce. Glaze fish with sauce as it cooks on second side (~5 minutes).
*You don't have to use mahi mahi. Any meaty fish will work: halibut, salmon, swordfish, even cod.
