Grilled Snapper with Mint Relish
|Fresh mint leaves||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), lightly packed|
|Cilantro leaves||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), lightly packed|
|Lemon juice||2 Tablespoon|

In a blender or food processor, whirl mint, cilantro, lemon juice, water, chile, garlic, and cumin until herbs are finely minced.
Stir in coconut and set aside.
Rinse fish, pat dry, and place on a lightly greased grill 4 to 6 inches above a solid bed of hot coals.
Cook until edges of fish begin to turn opaque; then slide a wide spatula beneath fillets and turn them over.

With spatula, transfer fish to 2 dinner plates; top with mint-cilantro mixture.
