1 jalapeno chili, seeded and minced
1 cup jicama, peeled and diced
1/4 cup flaked coconut  
4 tbsp Coconut Balsamic Vinegar

sea salt
black pepper
4 6 oz grouper fillets

Combine the pineapple, lime zest, jalapeno, jicama, coconut,

balsamic vinegar and 2 tbsp olive oil together in a medium

bowl until well mixed…set aside.
Prepare the grill to medium heat.
Brush the fish with the remaining olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.

Lemon Pesto Grilled Shrimp

~Immerse bamboo skewers in water and let them soak while the shrimp isin the fridge soaking up the delicious pesto.
Double thread the shrimp on the skewer through the head and tail…or use two skewers…one through the heads and one through the tails…this will keep the shrimp from spinning while you try to grill.

2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp lemon pepper
1/2 cup your favorite pre-made pesto
3 tbsp Lemon Olive Oil
1 lb raw shrimp, tails on

Whisk the juice, zest, pepper, pesto and oil together in a large bowl until well blended.
Add the shrimp and toss until well coated...cover the bowl and refrigerate for an hour.
Preheat your grill or broiler.
Thread the shrimp onto bamboo or metal skewers.
Grill or broil the shrimp until they turn pink…about 1 1/2 minutes per side for medium-large shrimp...2 minutes for jumbos.
