- Return skillet with the remaining ginger-shallot mixture to medium heat and stir in wine, lemon juice, lemon zest, and pepper.
- Bring to a boil, add cornstarch mixture and return to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 1 minute or until thickened and slightly glossy.
- Transfer the grilled mahi-mahi fillets to plates and drizzle shallot-ginger glaze over them.
- Teriyaki is a technique used in Japan in which foods are grilled in a sweet soy sauce marinade or tare. The tare is made by mixing and heating soy sauce, sake and honey. The sauce is boiled and reduced to the desired thickness, then used to marinate fish or meat which is then grilled. Sometimes ginger/garlic is added. Use 3 measures soy sauce, 3 measures sake and 1 measure sugar/honey.
