  • 1 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1 cup Japanese breadcrumbs (panko)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 (8-ounce) sea bass or halibut fillets
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • Mango-Lime Salsa


  1. Pulse macadamia nuts in a food processor until finely ground. Add breadcrumbs, and pulse 2 or 3 times or until combined. Place nut mixture in a shallow dish.
  2. Place flour in a shallow dish. Whisk eggs in a medium bowl. Sprinkle fish with salt. Dredge fish in flour; shake off excess, and dip in egg. Dredge fish in nut mixture, coating completely.
  3. Heat oil and butter in a large heavy skillet over medium heat until butter melts. Add fish; cook 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until golden. (If nuts begin to brown too quickly, reduce heat.) Serve with Mango-Lime Salsa.
