I thought this recipe was excellent and will be making it again. The flavors are subtle, but I love sesame oil/seeds and their flavor.

Honestly our did not turn out very flavorful.. maybe I should have used more ginger? Probably won't make again.

I agree, it did not turn out very flavorful. We thought it might need some soy sauce for a boost.

Not much flavor. Oven too hot and cooking time too long...On to the next...

We found this delicious. I did make a few small changes based on the ingredients I had on hand. Rather than shaved ginger, I lightly coated each side with powdered ginger. I also toasted the sesame seeds before coating the fish. After adding the sesame oil I added kosher salt but no garlic pepper. Once the fish was just about done, I put it under the broiler for about 5 minutes to brown the seed crust on top. Just before serving, I poured a thin line of Trader Joe's Soyaki sauce down the middle of each piece. The fish was flavorful and juicy. Will definitely make it again.

Missing something. Not quite sure what. Definitely needed something else though. I put a dash of soy sauce on mine and it helped.

Whole Foods and most other stores stopped selling Mahi Mahi due to code Red overfishing; they suggested Tuna instead, due to its similar texture. From reading the previous reviews, I doubled the ginger amount. It was awesome! My friends said that it was one of the best dishes I made in a long time. Nice! :)
