Aloha grouper gets its name because it is a blend of Hawaiian, Polynesian and Asian-influenced flavors, reminiscent of a gastronomic tropical island experience! This dish calls for grouper, but any firm, flaky white fish can be substituted. Enjoy!

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

3

Mix all ingredients except fish, watermelon, black cherries, key lime and rice in food processor and blend well for 2-3 minutes.

4

Place fish fillets on a sheet of aluminum foil large enough to fold over both pieces of fish. Evenly spread ingredients from food processor over both sides of fish.

5
