Angie’s Recipe of the Day : Macadamia Crusted Halibut with Spicy Mango Salsa



  • 3/4 cup Macadamia nuts, chopped
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • 1 Tbs fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (or Tony  Chachere’s)
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lb fresh halibut fillets
  • zest of 1/2 orange


  1. Preheat oven to 350℉.
  2. Toast Macadamia nuts in a small skillet over medium-low heat until slightly golden.  NOTE: stir constantly, as they will burn quickly if unattended. Set aside and allow nuts to cool completely before chopping.  Chop when cool.
  3. Meanwhile, lightly grease a shallow baking dish with coconut or olive oil.
  4. In a medium bowl, beat egg with almond or coconut milk and set aside.
  5. Add parsley, sea salt, pepper,cayenne (cajun seasoning)  and orange zest to a shallow bowl with the nuts.
  6. Dip each halibut fillet in egg mixture, and coat on both sides, then press halibut in nut mixture.  Be sure each fillet is fully coated.
  7. Place fillets in the shallow baking pan, and bake for 15 minutes (or until fish flakes apart with a fork).
  8. Serve with Mango Salsa.
