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

    This had so few ingredients and was so simple and quick, I thought it would be mediocre and good enough for a quick weeknight meal but WOW—It was delicious! This recipe is a TREASURE for working people. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Didn't think anything SO easy could be this delicious! I made it with rice and asparagus. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thank you :-)

    I thought this recipe was super easy to make and tasted wonderful! I was fortunate enough to try it with some freshly caught mahi that I hooked down in Mexico. What a difference fresh fish makes to a recipe! If you have a chance, skip the store-bought stuff and get the wild. Itand#039;s never been easier to catch and cook especially with a great recipe like this one!

    This was super easy and with the right teriyaki, quite good. Make more sauce if you want to put it on rice too.
