Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi
  • 5 ounces coarsely ground, roasted macadamia nuts (about 1 1/4 cups)
  • 1/2 cup panko (japanese-style bread crumbs)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • vegetable oil, for brushing foil
  • 4 (6 to 8 ounce) mahi mahi fillets
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons coconut milk
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a medium bowl, stir together the nuts, panko, flour, and butter. Set aside.
  2. Place a piece of aluminum foil on a baking sheet and brush it liberally with vegetable oil. Place the mahi mahi on the foil and sprinkle each fillet with salt and pepper on both sides. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush each fillet with the coconut milk. Divide the nut mixture among the tops of the 4 fillets, patting the mixture to spread and adhere to the fillets. Return to the oven and bake for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
  3. Remove from the oven
