Grilled Mahi Mahi with Orange & Sesame Asparagus

This is was a very light dish.  Easy to cook too.  Has great flavor and the oranges makes the Mahi Mahi taste wonderful. This is an appetizing dish that I will cook again.


1. 4 Mahi Mahi Filets

2. salt and pepper

3. 2 limes, juiced

4. 3 Tbl dark tamari soy sauce

5. 2 in of fresh ginger root, grated (1 1/2 Tbl)

6. 1 Tbl olive oil


1. 1 to 1 1/4 pounds of thin asparagus spears

2. 2 naval oranges

3. 1 in fresh ginger root, grated

4. 2 Tbl toasted sesame seeds


Preheat grill pan to medium to high heat.  Season Mahi Mahi fillets with salt and pepper.  Combine the lime juice, dark soy, ginger and olive oil in a shallow dish.  Turn the Mahi Mahi in the citrus soy marinade you just prepared and let it set for about 10 minutes to marinate.  Grill on hot grill pan for 6 min/side for a 1 in fillet or until fish is cooked.

Take 1 spear of asparagus and hold it as each end and bend it until it snaps and breaks.  Do the same to the other spears.  Using a peeler, make thin long strips of orange zest from both oranges.  Cut the ends off the zested oranges. Peel the orange and remove the pith.  Then cut into slices (like you would a tomato).  Take a skillet and cover 1 in of water and bring to a boil withthe zest of the oranges and grated ginger.  Simmer 1 minute and add the asparagus and salt.  Simmer 3 minutes and then drain.  Remove ONLY the asparagus and assemble onto a plate over the orange slices.  Sprinkle sesame seeds over it and then place the Mahi Mahi on top then serve.
