Latimeria's Macadamia Nut Mahi
« on: September 24, 2021, 03:48:28 PM »


I actually cooked it again today and took the time write how I did it.  I also took pictures, but I'll have to clean them up

Latimeria’s Macadamia Nut Mahi-Mahi

•   Mix the nuts, bread crumbs, salt and pepper in a small food processor; cover and pulse until nuts are moderately to finely chopped.
•   Whisk egg and water in another bowl. Also put flour and nut mixture in separate bowls. Coat fillets with flour, then dip in egg mixture and coat with nut mixture.
•   In a large skillet, heat oil over medium to medium high heat; cook fillets for about 4 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown.  (Pre-heat the oven to 400°F)
•   In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the brown sugar, soy sauce and ginger. Microwave uncovered, on high, for about 40-50 seconds or until sugar is dissolved. This will be the drizzle for over the fish at the end.
•   Cut pieces of aluminum foil that you can make a “Boat” around each piece that’s being cooked.  Place a filet in each “boat” and then take the remaining nut/panko crumble from the bowl and generously sprinkle on top of each piece.
•   Place in oven for about 10 minutes or until the top of the new crumble mix starts to brown.
•   Remove and drizzle the ginger/soy over the fish in a zig-zag pattern and serve!

Ingredients

•   1 cup panko bread crumbs
•   1 cup macadamia nuts
•   1/4 teaspoon salt
•   1/4 teaspoon white pepper
•   1 egg
•   2 teaspoons water
•   All-purpose flour to coat raw fish
•   6 mahi filets (I guess moderate to the size of the chunks you will use, but 5x4 is a general size I cut it to)
•    canola oil for cooking
•   3 tablespoons brown sugar
•   3 tablespoons soy sauce
•   3 teaspoons minced gingerroot

Just need to substitute one ingredient.

Those are green beans? Thought they were grilled peppers.  Either way, I’m in.

I had a different ingredient in mind.

Another killer looking dish. Just got some rockfish that maybe I could try this with.

You want skipjack instead of mahi right?
