Servings: 4 people
- 4 mahi mahi filets 6 ounces each
- 1 cup coconut milk
- Juice of 1 lime
- 2 cups dry roasted & salted macadamia nuts
- 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
- ½ teaspoon Kosher salt
- ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Chop the macadamia nuts in a food process until they are the consistency of bread crumbs. Be careful not to chop too long until they turn into a nut butter.
Mix together macadamia nuts, panko breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper in a shallow pan like a pie dish. Whisk the coconut milk and lime juice together in another shallow dish.
Dip Mahi Mahi in coconut milk to coat both sides, then press the mahi-mahi into the panko-breadcrumb mixture. You may need to press the nut and breadcrumb mixture onto the fish to make sure they stick.
Transfer the mahi-mahi fillets to the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until white and flaky inside.
Sprinkle with mango salsa and coconut jasmine rice!
