Yummy! I didn't drizzle the honey butter mixture on it though. Instead I boiled the marinade, then added the butter to the marinade and made a delicious sauce to pour over top. We served it with pineapple mango salsa, and rice.

Made this tonight for dinner for my mom - LOVED it! So simple, amazingly delicious, and definitely impressed her! The coconut marinade was divine. Pair with mango salsa (the pico de gallo kind) and spinach salad with homemade mango dressing. WOW! Thanks for posting.

Great recipe!! I didn't have any macademia nuts, so I substituted pistachios instead. YUM! Will definately make this again. Thank you.
