Mahi Mahi and Pimento Cheese Venison Balls

Yes I know weird combo. A Trader Joes opened by my house a while back and I made a journey to see what goodies they had. A while back I had bought there Mahi Mahi and was sold so the wife wanted fish for dinner tonight and that's what I got, also there mushroom risotto. Took the Mahi and vacuum sealed it with balsamic vinegar for a few hours and then dusted with DP Pineapple Express. As for the Venison Pimento Cheese balls, I had some left over ground venison and some venison breakfast sausage from the weekend. Mixed both meats together and had some frozen hatch chili pimento cheese balls in the freezer. Wrapped the meat around and threw them on at around 400. I kept mopping them with bone sucking sauce through the whole cook. The fish was incredible and then I but when I bit into the venison balls I think I almost fainted. My wife said why did I request fish and this incredible meatball is here. We both had big smiles on our face through the whole dinner. Looks like these will be made again.

    @Griffin I did make the pimento cheese myself. 

    On another note I did this post on my iPad and had it not looking like a 8 year old wrote it. But when I posted it everything merged into one big paragraph. Very confusing.
