Soy Mahi Mahi with Nectarine Salsa

I got some frozen mahi mahi the other day from Costco.  People think that just because I live in Hawaii, I can cast my fishing pole in the ocean right by where I live and a Mahi Mahi fish will be caught.  WRONG.  I wish I could do that.  I will settle for the frozen packages kind at Costco, much easier.  This recipe is very fresh, light, fast, and tastes amazing.  All the flavors are there, salty, sweet, and tangy.  You could really use any stone fruit to make this salsa.  The nice thing is that you don't have to worry about the fruit being perfectly ripe either.

Soy Mahi Mahi with Nectarine Salsa

3-4 Mahi Mahi Fillets
1/4 c soy sauce
2 tbs lime juice
1 tbs honey
1 tbs grated ginger

1-2 nectarines
1/2 c cilantro, chopped
1 jalapeno, seeds removed, chopped finely
1/2 bell pepper, any color, chopped finely
2-3 green onion, sliced thinly
1 small clove garlic, minced
1-2 tbs lime juice
salt and pepper to taste

Combine marinade ingredients in a large ziplick bag.  Add Mahi Mahi fillets and marinade for 30 minutes to an hour.  Combine ingredients for the salsa, and season to taste.  Heat 1 tbs of oil in a large skillet on high.  Remove Mahi Mahi from the marinade and add to the pan.  Sear for 4 minutes on medium high for both sides.  Serve on top of white rice and black beans.  Top fish with nectarine salsa.
