Mmmmm, macadamia's!!

Just tried this new recipe for mahi-mahi and I had to share....'s wonderful and SUPER easy!

Really, it must try it :)

Macadamia Crusted Mahi-Mahi

2 nice size filet's of mahi-mahi
4 limes
4 T. butter, divided
1/4 c. finely chopped macadamia nuts
1/3 c. panko (japanese breadcrumbs)

Juice 4 limes, and then marinate mahi-mahi in lime juice at room temperature for 1 hour.

Preheat over to 350. Melt butter, then add 2 T. of the melted butter to a shallow baking dish. Place mahi-mahi in dish, brushing each side with the melted butter that is in the dish. Season with salt and pepper.

In a small mixing bowl, add the remaining 2 T. of melted butter. Mix in chopped macadamia nuts and panko. Spoon the mixture on top of the fish, pressing it lightly to form a crust.

Bake until fish is opaque in center, about 10-15 minutes (depending on thickness of your filet's).
