Grilled Mahi skewers with Macadamia nut pesto

This twist on the classic pesto recipe uses macadamia nuts and coconut oil and is paired with grilled fish kebabs for quick, easy and healthy dinner!


INgredients

  • 1/4 cup Macadamia Nuts (37g), plus additional for garnish
  • 1 1/2 Cups Cilantro, lightly packed
  • 1/2 tsp Fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp Fresh lime juice
  • 2-3 Tbsp Coconut oil, melted
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 2 Fillets of Mahi Mahi(12oz)
  • Pineapple chunks, for skewering

Directions

To make the pesto:

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and place the macadamia nuts on a small baking sheet.
  • Bake the nuts until they are toasted and goldenbrown, about 10-12 minutes.
  • Add the nuts into a small food processor and process until they are slightly crumbly.
  • Add in the cilantro, ginger, and lime juice.
  • Process until the cilantro is broken down.
  • Add in 2 Tbsp of melted coconut oil and process until well combined. You may add additional oil if you like it runnier.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Fish Prep & Skewers:

  • Cut the Mahi Mahi into large chunks and place into a medium bowl.
  • Pour half of the pesto on top of the fish and stir until the fish is well coated.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  • Preheat your grill to medium heat.
  • Divide the fish and add as much pineapple as you want evenly between two skewers.
  • Place the skewers on the grill and cook until the fish is white throughout and the pineapple has nice grill marks – about 2-4 minutes per side.
  • Serve the skewers with the remaining pesto and top with remaining toasted macadamia nuts.
  • DEVOUR!
