Part of the secret of a success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.  ~ Mark Twain

I hit upon a winner tonight and wanted to share.  Last time I was at TJ, I picked up a couple packages of frozen (fresh frozen) mahi mahi, sure I could find something to do with them.  Also, the husband and I have talked about trying to incorporate fish into our menu at least once/week.  Tonight was our "once/week".

I pulled the mahi mahi out of the freezer, wondering what to do with it.  Last time I encrusted it in a mixture of panko and macadamia nuts and sauteed it in butter and it was just OK.  I really thought it would be a winner.  So I went in search of a winner.

I found it at  I made ginger glazed mahi mahi.  I think next time I make it I might spice it up a bit with some red pepper flakes and some sherry but this was really good.  I did grill it vs pan frying and was happy I did.  I served it with coconut rice (jasmine rice cooked in coconut milk) and summer squash and zucchini kabobs (brushed lightly with olive oil, seasoned and grilled)...oh and fresh cut cantaloupe.   Oh, and garlic bread.  The husband and I also indulged in a bottle of Napa River Chardonnay (another TJ find).  Here's the kicker.  ALL.MY.KIDS.ATE.IT.

Whoo-hoo!!!  I love it when a plan comes together.
