Tips for making Glazed Mahi Mahi
Your mahi mahi will be finished cooking when it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F. This doesn't take very long to achieve so keep a close eye on the fish as they bake because smaller pieces can cook faster than the larger ones.
A good way to test whether or not the fish has been fully cooked is by taking a fork and lightly piercing it into the meat and giving a light upward twist. The meat of the fish should flake up to reveal the layers in the meat.
FAQ's about oven baked Mahi Mahi
The general rule for cooking fish is to the internal temperature of 145 degrees F but some people will eat mahi-mahi at 137 degrees F making it a little more on the rare side.
Leftover fish can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. For best results eat sooner rather than later and reheat before eating.
This fish would go great with simple roasted veggies and white rice or a nice and simple white sauce pasta.
