Spicy Honey Mahi Mahi with Chili Mango Rice

Ohhh, yum, yum, yum. This meal is all about sweet and spicy, which we love. I asked P what I should say about this meal and he said, "It's a little bit of spice with a whole lot of awesome!" Haha!

Spicy Honey Mahi Mahi

2 mahi mahi filets
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 teaspoons crushed ginger
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
Salt and pepper to taste

(Please note that I very rarely ever use any sort of measuring devices, so these amounts are all guesstimates. I suggest tasting the marinade as you go along and just adding whatever you think it needs.)

In a small bowl, mix all ingredients except for the fish.

Pour mixture over fish and marinate for at least 30 minutes.

In a frying pan, warm up a little sesame oil over medium heat. Remove fish from marinade and cook for about 5 minutes on each side.

In a small sauce pan, reduce marinade to a glaze over medium heat.

Pour glaze over fish and enjoy!

Now for the rice. I'm seriously obsessed with all things mango. Just today I used mango shampoo, mango shaving cream, drank mango green tea, ate mangos for breakfast and then found a way to incorporate mangos into our dinner. At least I'm obsessed with something that is packed with vitamins and nutrients, right? :)

Chili Mango Rice

3 cups water
1 cup chicken stock
1 cup orange juice
2 cups brown rice
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 cup cubed mango
2 tsp chili garlic sauce
Juice from one lime

Bring 3 cups water and 1 cup chicken stock to a boil. Add rice and cook as directed on package.

When rice is almost done cooking, add orange juice, mango, cilantro, chili garlic sauce, and lime juice.

Simmer until juice is absorbed and mango is heated through.

This made a lot of rice, so I can't wait to eat it again for lunch tomorrow!
