How to Make Macadamia nut crusted Mahi-Mahi

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.
