spontaneous cooking recipe - Opah, Mango with Hot Fungui

So I had a hankering for mangoes last night, and went in with that fruit in mind for dinner. And some fresh opah fish caught my eye. Opah is a Hawaiian fish that's really hard, and chewy-ish, almost chicken like. So I bought that, and decided to marinate that in some orange juice with some sesame oil. And the butcher suggested skewering them with some mushrooms.
