Honey Glazed Mahi Mahi

I don't have a picture of this one, I made this on a last minute noticed and that's all the ingredients I had but to my surprise, this actually came out really REALLY good! I will definitely make this again and will definitely take a pic!

2 Mahi Mahi Filets, cut into bite size
2 tbs Honey
2 tbs soy sauce
2 tbs balsamic vinaigrette (I used Wishbone Light Balsamic and Basil Vinaigrette *thumbs up*)
1/2 tsp minced ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp olive oil
Salt and Pepper

1) Place all ingredients in a ziplog bag, let marinate 20-30 minutes.
2) Pan fry the filet (reserve the marinade) in a skillet until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side, remove filets and place on serving plate.
3) Pour in reserved marinade in skillet and let it cook about 5 minutes, brush glaze over filets and serve immediately.

This is definitely an East Meets West dish but the flavor of the vinaigrette and the ginger really brings out the taste of the fish. I'm sure this will go just as well with salmon filets!

I have been really busy lately. Still studying for my certification but I realized what I love doing the most--organizing events, no matter how tiring it could be! This past weekend I coordinated my sister-in-law's beautiful wedding. That was my 6th and I've got 2 more lined up in Oct and next March. I wonder how much it costs to coordinate a wedding? maybe I should do this as a side business!

Anyway, attached is one of my favorites pictures I took from the wedding day...I called this "Timeless".
