    1 cup light coconut milk
    1 8oz bottle clam juice
    2 tbsp lime juice
    4 tsp minced peeled fresh ginger
    2 garlic cloves, pressed
    1 tsp fish sauce (nam pla or nuoc nam)
    1 or 2 tsp minced seeded serrano chile or 1 tbsp minced seeded jalapeno
    4 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro, divided
    4 tbsp minced scallions, divided
    salt and pepper
    4 6oz mahi-mahi filets


Prepare grill to medium-high heat.

Combine coconut milk, clam juice, lime juice, ginger, garlic, and fish sauce in a medium skillet. Add chile to desired heat level; boil until sauce thickens slightly and is reduced to 3/4 cup, 8 to 9 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in 2 tbsp cilantro and scallions each, and season with salt and pepper.

Brush fish all over with 1/4 cup sauce; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill fish until opaque in center and grill marks appear, 5 to 7 minutes per side, depending on thickness of fish. Serve with remaining sauce, cilantro, and scallions.

Makes 4 servings.
