      I enjoyed this recipe. It was simple to put together, and I enjoyed snacking on the toasted macadamia nuts before crushing them in the mini-food processor. The macadamia nut crust stuck to one piece of fish, but stuck to the grill or fell through on the other. So I was a bit disappointed with that. The pineapple salsa was yummy%u2026.I used a red chili pepper to add color. Thanks for sharing another yummy recipe! Made for ZWT7.

      We really enjoyed this dish! But then, what's not to like about mahi mahi. Although we did lose a few macadamias when turning, the honey did a spectacular job of keeping most intact. This is one mighty tasty recipe. The pineapple-ginger salsa was a great accompaniment, though I think it was just a tad too watery. Next time, I will omit the pinapple juice altogether and rely on the lime juice for consistency. Thanks, lazyme. Made for ZWT7, Mischief Makers.

      Stupid, stupid recipe. Think about it. Let's just put sprinkle some ground madadamia nuts on, flip the fish over on the grill and expect them to stay on! Doesn't work. I realized as soon as I tried it that it wasn't going to work. Also, the relish has WAY too much liquid. Not even one star.
