Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Time for something a little more on the healthy side and extremely delicious. I ran across this recipe on Food, Friends, and Fun and started drooling on my keyboard. I modified it just slightly to fit our taste. I don't LOVE fish, but I do really enjoy a deliciously cooked fillet of fish every once in awhile. The Mahi Mahi was expensive so I only bought two fillets (one for both me and the hubs) and then I let my kids have a tastes, but fixed them something else. They were not offended at all.
I really really enjoyed it and wish I had bought more because I wanted more. Treat your tastebuds to a treat... This could definitely be a special occasion meal.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root
2 cloves garlic, crushed or to taste
2 teaspoons olive oil
4 (6 ounce) mahi mahi fillets
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

In a shallow glass dish, stir together the honey, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, ginger, garlic and olive oil. Season fish fillets with salt and pepper, and place them into the dish. If the fillets have skin on them, place them skin side down. Cover, and refrigerate for 20 minutes to marinate.
Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove fish from the dish, and reserve marinade. Fry fish for 4 to 6 minutes on each side, turning only once, until fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove fillets to a serving platter and keep warm.
Pour reserved marinade into the skillet, and heat over medium heat until the mixture reduces to a glaze consistently. Spoon glaze over fish, and serve immediately.
