Yields12 Servings
 3 (13.5 ounce) can unsweetened coconut milk
 12 tsp minced peeled fresh ginger
 3 tbsp fresh lime juice
 6 garlic cloves, minced
  3 tbsp Thai red curry paste
 3 tsp sugar
 12 (6-ounce) Mahi Mahi Filets
 6 garlic cloves, minced
 3 tsp fish sauce
 Steamed rice for serving
 6 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro plus more for serving
 6 tbsp minced scallions plus more for serving
1

Combine coconut milk, brown sugar, soy sauce, lime juice, garlic, ginger, and fish sauce in a medium saucepan.

2

Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until it slightly thickens, about 8 to 9 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in chopped cilantro and green onions. Let the sauce cool slightly, then season with salt and pepper to taste.

3

Set aside a portion of the sauce for later use. Take 1/4 cup of the sauce and use it to marinate the Mahi Mahi Filets. Reserve the remaining sauce to serve alongside the cooked dish.

4

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

5

Place the mahi-mahi fillets on the prepared baking sheet. Season them with salt and pepper, then brush them with the 1/4 cup of reserved sauce that was used for marinating.

6

Bake the fish in the preheated oven until it is opaque in the center, which typically takes 10 to 20 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillets.

7

Serve the cooked fish with hot rice and the remaining sauce. Optionally, garnish with additional chopped cilantro and scallions according to taste.
