From Bon Appetit, this is a great way of making mahimahi. Times do not include 1 hour marinating.

This was delightful. The cilantro added such a wonderful flavor, and the macadamia nuts provided a nice crunch that contrasted well with the other softer ingredients. We loved it. I'll definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe, lazyme. Made for the 2012 My-3-Chefs event.
