Miso Mahi-Mahi

  • 1 tablespoon miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce (I used a mushroom soy sauce, but you can substitute regular soy sauce if a darker, thicker variety isn't available)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon grated ginger root
  • 12 oz. fresh Mahi Mahi
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

Combine the first 6 ingredients (miso paste through grated ginger root) and add fish to re-sealable freezer bag. Marinate the fish for at least 1 hour and up to 6 hours before cooking.

To cook, heat the toasted sesame oil in a nonstick, heavy bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fish, letting any marinade drip off the fish before adding it to the pan. Pan fry the fish for 5-7 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fish. The fish is done when the flesh no longer appears translucent and it can be flaked easily with a fork.

  • Yields: 2-3 servings
  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes plus marinating time
