Alton Brown’s Macadamia Crusted Mahi Mahi



5 ounces (about 1 ¼ cups) coarsely ground, roasted macadamia nuts

½ cup panko (Japanese-style bread crumbs)

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

¼ cup butter, melted

Vegetable oil, for brushing foil

4 (6 to 8-ounce) mahi mahi fillets

Kosher salt and pepper

2 tablespoons coconut milk


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a medium bowl, stir together the nuts, panko, flour, and butter. Set aside.
  2. Place a piece of aluminum foil on a baking sheet and brush it liberally with vegetable oil. Place the mahi mahi on the foil and sprinkle each fillet with salt and pepper on both sides. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush each fillet with the coconut milk. Divide the nut mixture among the tops of the 4 fillets, patting the mixture to spread and adhere to the fillets. Return to the oven and bake for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
  3. Remove from the oven and allow to stand 10 minutes before serving.
