Teriyaki Mahi Mahi
After trying a few mahi mahi recipes, this one is definitely my favorite. This glazed mahi mahi is good with rice, vegetables or salad. Blotting the fillets before cooking allows a nice brown crust to form. Cod or halibut can be used, too. —Michelle Ibarrientos, Torrance, California
