Alton Brown's recipe. I've substituted margarine for butter to cut down on cholesterol. The recipe below says "halibut fillets" only because CC doesn't have mahi mahi in their database. Mahi mahi should be used, but, since it is hard to find in some areas, the mahi mahi could be substituted with halibut, tilapia, tuna, or cod.

Recipe Ingredients for Alton Brown's Macadamia Encrusted Mahi Mahi

5 oz macadamia nuts, coarsely ground
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup shredded coconut
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/4 cup margarine, melted
1 tbsp Vegetable oil, for brushing foil
16 oz halibut fillets
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 tbsp coconut milk

Recipe Directions for Alton Brown's Macadamia Encrusted Mahi Mahi

  1. [These are Alton Brown's exact instructions.]

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

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