Total Time:
30 mins


  • ½ cup frozen shelled sweet soybeans (edamame)

  • 8 ounce fresh or frozen skinless mahi mahi fillets

  • 2 tablespoon pure maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion

  • 1 tablespoon honey mustard

  • 2 teaspoon olive oil

  • teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon black pepper

  • 4 cup coarsely shredded napa cabbage

  • ½ cup fresh snow peas pods, trimmed and halved crosswise

  • 2 tablespoon snipped dried cherries

  • 2 tablespoon sliced almonds, toasted


  1. Cook edamame according to package directions; drain. Set aside to cool.

  2. Preheat broiler. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Cut fish into two portions. Measure thickness of fish; set aside.

  3. For dressing, in a small bowl whisk together maple syrup, vinegar, onion, honey mustard, oil, salt, and pepper.

  4. Remove 2 tablespoons of the dressing and brush on all sides of the fish pieces.

  5. Place fish on the unheated greased rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4 inches from heat until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Allow 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness of fish.

  6. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine napa cabbage, snow pea pods, and cooked edamame. Pour the remaining dressing over cabbage mixture; toss to coat. To serve, divide cabbage mixture between two serving plates. Sprinkle with cherries and almonds. Top with fish.
