Wild Mahi Mahi with Ginger Glaze

Whenever I’m in Trader Joe’s I stop by the freezer section to see what they have for wild fish. Last week they had some wild Mahi Mahi. Yeah! I love Mahi Mahi. And at Trader Joe’s it’s a great deal. The last time I bought some from the local grocery store, which has a nice little fish section, it was $20 per pound. Ouch! Trader Joe’s price: $7.99 per pound.


This ginger garlic glaze is really easy and tasty. You can have your main dish done in about 15 minutes. But it’s better if you do some prep ahead of time so the fish can soak in the marinade for at least 30 minutes.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 10-12 minutes

Serves: 4



  • 3 T organic honey

  • 3 T coconut aminos

  • 3 T balsamic vinegar

  • 1 t grated ginger

  • 1 clove garlic, pressed

  • 3 T avocado oil

  • 4 six ounce mahi mahi fillets (you can double the fish and make the same amount of sauce… there’s plenty)

  • Himalayan salt or sea salt to taste

  • Freshly ground pepper to taste

  • 1 T coconut oil (if you’re cooking on the stovetop)


  • In a shallow baking dish, combine the honey, coconut aminos, balsamic vinegar, ginger, garlic and olive oil. Mix well.

  • Coat both sides of each fillet well and let it sit in the marinade for at least 30 minutes

  • Heat a gas grill to 325-350 degrees or a heat a large skillet on the stovetop and add the coconut oil

  • Optional (simmer the leftover marinade in a small saucepan until it thickens (about 5-10 minutes) Pour this over the fish.

  • Cook the fillets approximately 3 minutes on each side and start checking for doneness. The fish is done when it easily flakes all the way through with a fork.
