  1. For the Mahi Mahi, combine first 9 ingredients and whisk together to make a marinade.
  2. Pour marinade over mahi mahi fillets, refrigerate and marinate for 1 hour minimum (but no more than 3 hours).
  3. Remove fillets from marinade, drain, and grill on coals or gas grill until fish flakes when pierced with a fork (145°F).
  4. For the Chipotle-Mango-Macadamia Pesto, place all ingredients in blender or food processor and pulse until chunky; do not overprocess. Texture should be almost salsa-like. Serve with the Spicy Sesame Grilled Mahi Mahi.
