First of all I’d like to thank everybody for following Lite Goodies and motivating me to cook and share my healthy recipes ;). I hope in 2014 I can keep inspiring you to incorporate good eating habits into your life!
Lite Goodies last recipe of 2013 is something I really love: fish. This Thai Glazed Mahi-Mahi Recipe contains the perfect combination of sweet and savory, the dish is beautiful and easy to prepare. If you prefer, you can substitute the mahi-mahi with other white fish, as cod or hake fish.
If your New Year’s resolution is eating healthier, this is a great way to start! Grab a paper and a pen and let’s cook:
Thai Glazed Mahi-Mahi Recipe – Ingredients:
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon ginger powder
1 teaspoon tamarind paste
4 mahi-mahi fillets
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sesame seeds for garnishing
Start preparing the marinate: in a small bowl stir together brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger powder, rice vinegar and tamarind paste. Place the mahi-mahi fillets in a ziplock (or in a container with lid) and add the marinate. Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.
Separate the fillets from the marinate. In a small sauce, pan cook the marinate over medium heat, whisking occasionally, until the mixture is thickened and reduces to a glaze consistence.
While you cook the marinate you will fry the fillets. Grease a large skillet with cooking spray. Over medium-high heat, fry fish for 4 to 6 minutes on each side, turning only once, until fish flakes easily with a fork.
When the fish is cooked, spoon glaze over it and garnish it with sesame seeds.
