30-Minute Meal Monday: Maple Glazed Mahi Mahi

September 19, 2011

I started my week off right this morning.


Kombucha- you  make the world a better place. For those of you that don’t know, Kombucha is a fermented tea that is said to have many health benefits aiding with digestion, has anti-viral and antibiotic properties, and is used to detoxify. It has a very vinegar-like taste,  but I find it refreshing and crisp. I enjoyed a Kombucha in lieu of coffee this morning.

Another great way to start the day is a healthy breakfast. One egg + egg whites, spinach, and onions. YUM!


For lunch I had a huge salad full of spring mix, cucumbers, snap peas, sprouts, and ginger dressing.


I enjoyed all my eats today, but dinner was the cake topper. Who knew such a simple and nutritious meal could be so delicious.


What I love about this meal:

  • It’s packed with protein
  • It’s easy to make
  • It’s high in vitamin c
  • It’s high in iron
  • It tasted wonderful
  • It has healthy fats
  • It’s high in b vitamins

Maple Glazed Mahi Mahi


  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 finely chopped shallot
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons rosemary
  • 2 5-ounce fresh or frozen skinless mahi mahi fillets, about 1 inch thick
  • 1 6-ounce package fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup cooked shelled edamame
  • 1 large red bell pepper cut into strips
  • 1 oz. chopped almond

In a small saucepan  make the maple syrup mixture- combine maple syrup, vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, shallot, salt, and pepper. For dressing, in a small bowl, stir together 2 tablespoons of the maple syrup mixture and the olive oil; set aside.


For glaze, heat the remaining maple syrup mixture to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer about 5 minutes.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place fish on greased pan and brush with half the glaze. Cook for 5 minutes. Turn fish over; brush with remaining glaze. Cook for 5-7 minutes more. Sprinkle with rosemary when fish is complete.


In a large bowl, combine spinach, edamame, pepper strips, and almonds. Drizzle spinach mixture with dressing; toss to coat.

Serve mahi mahi on top of salad and Enjoy!


Now THAT’s starting off the week right!

What did you have to eat today? Have you ever had mahi mahi? This way my first time to try it and I was impressed.

    Your meals were so green and lovely and light today! I’m a little jeal, not so much color happened on my plates today. Will fix that tomorrow 🙂

    That looks really good.
    I wish we had our own kitchen right now so I could do my own cooking without feeling so cramped.

    I’m not much of a seafood fan, but mahi mahi is my favorite.

    This reminds me of the movie Smiley Faces when the girl goes “I’d like a Mahi Mahi, but only one because I’m not that hungry” LOL!!

    I LOVE mahi mahi! This looks amazing, Britt. Definitely something I have to try this week. Maybe for my next “Kitchen Tuesdays” post! Thanks for sharing, as always.

    I love mahi-mahi! It is one of my favorite fish to eat. Try rubbing olive oil on it then lightly coating it with parmesean bread crumbs or a light dusting of instant potatos and bake. Yummy!
