Panda’s Asian Glazed Mahi Mahi

Recipes, Seafood | January 27, 2015 | By

This is a modified version of my mom’s famous Chinese glazed fish, one of my all-time childhood favorites! The secret to getting thick and flavorful sauce is to add the arrowroot powder/water mixture (cornstarch/water mixture traditionally) to the leftover marinade after the fillets have already been cooked. If you like it spicy, add a couple of dashes of crushed red pepper flakes to the marinade for an extra kick!
