Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi

So good that I had to stop everything and share. I had some Mahi Mahi that needed to be used, so I found this recipe courtesy of the fabulous Alton Brown. My husband and I both loved it. It was fast, easy, and delish!

I really liked the flavor of the macadamia nuts and the light, airy crunch of the Panko.

If you’d like the fish to have a bit more flavor, sprinkle a little lemon juice on top.

5 ounces (about 1 1/4 cups) coarsely ground, roasted macadamia nuts
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
2 tablespoons coconut milk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a medium bowl, stir together the nuts, panko, flour, and butter. Set aside.

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.

Remove from the oven and allow to stand 10 minutes before serving.
