Macadamia Crusted Fish
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 6 filets
  • About six filets of any wild caught white fish you like (we used sole)
  • 1 cup organic raw macadamia nuts (crushed)
  • 1 Tablespoon grass fed butter (cut into tiny pieces)
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. We used frozen sole that we had defrosted overnight in the fridge. Make sure fish is skinned and deboned. We bought it that way!
  3. Rinse each piece of fish off and pat dry.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  5. Place each filet of fish on the baking sheet
  6. On a cutting board, chop up macadamia nuts until mostly finely chopped with a larger pieces still visible. You can do this in a food processor also if you prefer.
  7. Coat the top of each filet with a thin layer of crushed macadamia nuts
  8. Break up the tablespoon of butter into little pieces. Place three or four tiny pieces of butter on the top of each filet. This will help the fish to reach a gold brown color in the oven.
  9. Put fish in the oven for approximately 10 minutes at 450 degrees. Broil for an additional minute or two if you want a light golden finish to top of fish. The sole filets we used were extremely thin. If the fish you choose is thicker, it may take longer in the oven. You want to make sure the fish is no longer opaque, but has turned white instead.
  10. Serve with a side of mango salsa, homemade tortilla chips and sliced avocado.
