Fish can be a little bit intimidating. Fortunately you're not alone. What is it about fish that is so intimidating?  A lot of it has to do with lack of experience opposed to something like steak or chicken.  Cooking skill is heavily correlated with experience, and a lot of people don’t get as much experience with fish because it’s expensive. When you happen to catch a mahi mahi on the water or even buy package at the store you can be sure you can turn it into a simple, foolproof, and delicious meal.



How to Make Macadamia Crusted Mahi Mahi:


To start, combine macadamia nuts, bread crumbs, flour, and butter:





Make an onion bed for the fish, and top the fish with lime slices.

Wrap it all up well in foil:

Bake for 7 minutes, then open up the foil and remove the lime wedges. Brush the tops with coconut milk and then top with the macadamia mixture:

Bake for another 5-7 minutes, until the fish is cooked through (this time will vary depending on the thickness of your fish, but either use an instant read thermometer (130 degrees F) or flake off crust with a fork to check for opaque flesh.

Ingredients


2 6-ounce mahi mahi fillets

1/2 cup ground macadamia nuts

1/4 cup bread crumbs use panko if you have it

1 tbsp all purpose flour

2 tbsp unsalted butter melted

1/2 a yellow onion

1 lime

1 tbsp coconut milk (I used the rest of the can for coconut rice)

salt and pepper



Instructions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil.Combine the macadamia nuts, bread crumbs, flour, and butter. Slice the onion up and lay the slices down on the foil to create a bed for the fish. This not only flavors and gives the fish a wonderful aroma, but also ensures that the fish does not stick to the foil. Slice the lime into rounds, and rub the fish on both sides with the lime. Season the fish with plenty of salt and pepper on both sides, and lay the fillets on top of the onion bed. Lay the lime rounds right on top of the fish, and seal the foil up all around the edges. Pop it into the oven, and bake for 7 minutes.Remove from the oven, open up the foil, and remove the lime wedges. Brush the tops of the fish with the coconut milk, then use your fingers to pack the macadamia crust on top of the fish.Bake for another 5-7 minutes, until the fish is cooked through (this time may vary depending on the thickness of your fish, but either use an instant read thermometer (130 degrees F) or flake crust with a fork to check for opaque flesh. Some serve mahi mahi with coconut rice (1 cup of rice, 1 cup of coconut milk, and 1 cup of water into a rice cooker. Easy and delicious).
