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.
