Macadamia Encrusted Mahi with Mango Sauce

Mahi Ingredients:
2 six-ounce mahi filets, boneless & skinless
¼ cup raw macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
½ cup all purpose flour
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons canola oil

Combine flour, macadamia nuts and salt and pepper. Press into both sides of mahi filets.

In a sauté pan over medium high heat, add canola oil and bring to temperature. Cook for three to four minutes per side. Set aside.

Mango Sauce Ingredients:

  • ½ cup pineapple juice
  • ½ tablespoon corn starch, mixed with 1 tablespoon water to form a cornstarch slurry
  • ½ cup mango chunks, cut about the size of a large pea
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon shallots, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter


    In a small sauce pan over medium heat, add the butter and shallots and cook until soft. Add the mango and pineapple juice, and bring to a slow boil. Slowly add the cornstarch slurry to thicken (you might not need all of the cornstarch mixture). Add ½ of cilantro.

    Place mahi filets on top of a bed of white rice and top with salsa. Garnish with remaining cilantro.
