Grain-free Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi-Mahi

It’s a bummer when you realize a recipe you really like is now “off-limits” due to gluten, like my Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi-Mahi (darn Panko!).  But, I found an alternative recipe online that I thought was delicious!  Perhaps it is the fact that I haven’t had sugar in any form for over 7 days but I thought it was so sweet (with no sugar even!!!) and tasty!  And it was simple to put together and cook (which is always a big bonus in this house!!!)

Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi-Mahi

Grain-Free Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi-Mahi

Recipe adapted from

3/4 c. finely chopped macadamia nuts
1/8 c. coconut flour
1/8 c. almond meal
2 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted plus more for greasing the pan
1-2 c. coconut milk (full-fat, like the kind you buy in a can – save the remainder in the can to use in a smoothie! Yum!)
sea salt/pepper to taste
4 fillets mahi-mahi

In a large bag, place mahi-mahi and coconut milk (enough to cover the fish fillets). Marinate for 30-60 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine macadamia nuts, coconut flour, and almond meal.

Line a baking sheet with foil and grease with coconut oil. Place fillets on the baking sheet and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Bake for 5 minutes at 425 degrees.

Add melted coconut oil to the nut/flour mixture. Remove fish from oven and turn over. Press the nut mixture into the fish fillets and bake for another 8-10 minutes or until fish is cooked through.

Remove from the oven and let sit for a few minutes before serving.
