Ginger Balsamic Glazed Mahi Mahi

I know, I know. I have been away for over a month! Things have been crazy around here. The month of June had me in Chicago and LA for work, and it will be two weeks this Saturday that we moved into our new house! Although we are definitely loving our new digs, we were without air conditioning for about ten days. And, of course, those ten days were the hottest days that we have had all summer! The worst part about having no AC, besides not sleeping well and sweating every time you move, is that we had yet to cook a meal in our new house. We even tried ordering take-out but as we were devouring our dinner we seemed to be sweating into the food - not appetizing. HVAC finally came on Tuesday and we were back up and running by Tuesday night. I hope to get back into the kitchen this weekend as we make our way through the last few boxes that we have yet to unpack!

One of the last meals we made before we moved was this ginger balsamic glazed mahi mahi.  This white fish is light and flavorful and will flake with the slightest touch of your fork. I also love it because my husband does the grilling while I take care of the sides (i.e. less clean-up inside). We served this with brown rice and steamed teriyaki veggies for an easy summer meal.
