We show that inducing modulation instability with a weak modulation whose frequency is such that its
second harmonic falls within the band of instability may lead to asynchronous Fermi­Pasta­Ulam recur-
rence and efficient transfer of power from the pump into the second harmonic of the modulation, result-
ing in a periodic modulation at the second harmonic with extinction ratios in excess of 30 dB.
