Ingredients

    3 tablespoons brown sugar
    4 tbsp water
    3 tablespoons soy sauce
    1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
    2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger root
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    1 teaspoon olive oil

    salt and pepper to taste

Directions

In a shallow glass dish, stir together the sugar, water, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, ginger, garlic and olive oil.
Season fish fillets lightly with salt and pepper, and place them into the dish.
Cover, and refrigerate for 20 minutes to marinate.
Preheat broiler.
Remove fish from the dish, and reserve marinade.
Place fish on a baking tray and broil 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 reduce until the mixture reduces to a glaze.
Spoon glaze over fish, and serve immediately.

    Very delicious yet quick and easy! Gotta love that! I used low sodium soy sauce and ground dry ginger. I will definitely make this one again because it uses ingredients that I regularly have on hand. - 6/18/08

    This turned out pretty good, & my husband & I are such snobs when it comes to fish (we catch our own). I used the Splenda Brown Sugar Blend instead of regular brown sugar, reduced sodium soy sauce, & dry ginger. I also baked it instead of broiling it. My husband really liked the glaze! - 6/12/08

    I made this last night and I would make only 1 revision. I would use less soy sauce. I felt like I was tasting too much soy sauce which is good I guess if you like soy sauce. My family said they really like it. My kids ate it up! - 6/11/08

    We loved this. Made exactly as the recipe indicated and served steamed broccoli and orzo pasta with mushrooms on the side. My 20 month old and 6.5 year old LOVED it, too (hubby did as well). Will try this same recipe Salmon soon. AWESOME! - 1/23/11

    This was delicous and easy to make it tasted like something you would get in a resturant. And for the first time in 10 years my husband didnt slather his fish with tarter sauce! The only changes I made was to add more ginger and garlic because I love those ingrediants. - 9/21/08

  • I used half the marinade for my fish and half for my spouse's chicken. Both were great and so easy to prepare! - 3/30/14

  • This was excellent. I didn't salt and pepper the fish first but the marinade took care of that. I served it with stir fried onions, zucchini and yellow squash. This was better than a restaurant meal. This is a keeper. By the way, I used Truvia instead of brown sugar bringing the calorie count down. - 11/10/13

  • This was easy and delicious! Followed measurements exactly, but used low sodium soy sauce, ground ginger, and replaced one tbsp of brown sugar with granulated splenda. Baked at 400 for 15 minutes. Husband loved the glaze and even my toddler liked this dish. Served with Asian-style mixed vegetables. - 4/20/13

  • SO delicious!! The sauce is so easy to make but tastes super- gourmet. I'm sure it's good with dried ginger too, but I think fresh ginger really adds the extra zing. We'll definitely be making this again, and I think I'll try it with chicken, too. THANK YOU! This is exactly what I was searching for! - 1/31/11

    This rating is based on my husband's opinion because he actually likes fish, I on the other hand, don't! I did eat it though and found this dish wasn't fishy at all. Good if you don't like strong fish flavor! Didn't make the house smell! Will make for husband again. - 4/14/10

  • My husband and I really enjoyed this! I will definitely make it again. I will mince the garlic next time though instead of crushing it. I used reduced sodium soy sauce and Splenda brown sugar. Not too overpowering to me, but I like those flavors. The sauce reduced nicely into a delicious glaze. - 3/19/10

  • I have never liked fish. I thought I'd try this because I had a bite of mahi mahi out and it wasn't bad. We enjoyed the recipe for being a fish recipe... still not liking fish. The sauce masked the fishy taste for us! That is a plus! - 2/2/10
