Ingredients

4
6 oz. fish fillets, approximately 1/2-inch thick
sea or kosher salt and fresh-ground pepper
2
eggs
olive oil for frying
1/4 c
macadamia nuts, crushed
1/4 c
plain white bread crumbs
1 tsp
orange zest
1 tsp
lime zest
1 tsp
garlic, minced
1 tsp
chives, minced
1 tsp
basil, chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Firmly press the flesh side of each filet into the crust mixture, until evenly crusted.
2
Season both sides of the fish fillets with the sea or kosher salt, and fresh-ground pepper.
3
In a bowl, beat the eggs. Dip the flesh side of each fillet into the egg mixture — not the skin side.
4
In a large pan, add about 1/4 inch of olive oil and heat to medium-hot.
5
Saute the fillets, crust side down, until they are golden brown and the crust is firmly set, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Turn and saute the skin side for approximately 1 minute.
6
Remove the fillets from the pan, pat off any excess oil. Place on a baking sheet and bake in oven for 3-4 minutes, until fish is just cooked through.
7
Serve with papaya salsa or your favorite sauce.
