1/2 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons scallion greens, finely chopped
1 teaspoon finely chopped jalapeno pepper

2 8-ounce Mahi-Mahi fillets, skinned
1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
3 tablespoons honey
 

Directions:
TO PREPARE RELISH:
In a small bowl, combine all the relish ingredients. Mix well. (The relish will keep, covered and refrigerated, for up to 8 hours.)

TO PREPARE MAHI-MAHI:
Prepare grill. Rub fillets with oil, then season with salt and pepper. When the fire is medium-hot, put the fillets on the grill. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on the first side. Turn the fish over and cook for 3 to 4 minutes longer. As the second side is cooking, brush the exposed side lightly with honey and sprinkle with half of the nuts. Turn the fillets over again and cook for 1 minute, meanwhile coating the second side with the remaining honey and nuts. Turn once again and cook 1 minute, or until the crust is golden brown. Remove the fillets from the grill. Cut each fillet into 2 portions and serve, accompanied by Pineapple Relish. Preparation time:30 40 minutes
