Hoisin and Ginger Glaze for Broiled Fish

Broiled Mahi Mahi with Hoisin Ginger Glaze

Makes ½ cup (enough for 8 pieces of fish)
Recipe from Cook’s Illustrated The Best Light Recipe
Husband-Tested in Alice’s Kitchen

Punch up the flavor of plain broiled fish with this delicious glaze.  Use this sauce to glaze salmon, mahi mahi, tuna or other sturdy fish fillets.  Use any extra sauce to drizzle over plain brown rice or steamed vegetables. All of the ingredients (including salmon, mahi mahi, tuna) can be found at Lost River Market & Deli, our favorite community-owned grocery store.

¼ cup hoisin sauce
3 Tablespoons rice vinegar
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
½ teaspoon Kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Whisk all the ingredients together then brush evenly over the tops and sides of the fish before broiling and several times throughout the broiling time.  If you wish, sprinkle the fish with sliced scallions or toasted sesame seeds after it has been broiled.
