Ingredients
  

For the Halibut

  • 4 halibut filets (4-6oz)
  • 1 cup roasted macadamia nuts* (see recipe notes)
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk i like almond for this recipe

For the Mango Salsa

  • 1 mango, peeled and diced
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 shallot, finely diced (~1/4 cup)
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1 tsp mild chili powder
  • 1/2 avocado, diced (~1/2 cup)
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

Instructions
 

For the Mango Salsa

  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix together. Let this sit while you prepare/cook the fish so the flavors have time to meld together.

For the Halibut

  • Preheat the oven to 425F.
  • Chop the macadamia nuts in a food processor or blender until fine like breadcrumbs — careful not to overprocess or these will turn into a butter.
  • Mix panko breadcrumbs, crushed macadamia nuts, salt and pepper in a tray or baking dish with high sides.
  • One at a time, dip the filets in a plant-based milk and then lay in the breadcrumb/nut mixture and coat all sides.
  • Transfer to a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Bake 14-16 minutes or until the flesh is opaque and flaky.
  • Serve immediately with mango salsa over top.

Notes

If you can’t find roasted macadamia nuts, these are very easy to do yourself! Make sure you purchase raw & unsalted macadamia nuts, then preheat the oven to 325F and roast on a lined baking sheet (dry, without any oil) for 10 minutes. Allow these to cool completely before chopping them up.
