Macadamia Crusted Mahi Mahi

 
This post is long overdue. I had originally planned this as part of my Hawaiian themed week a while back, but life got a little crazy so I am posting this now. The first time we tried mahi mahi (a Hawaiian fish) was on our last night at the Grand Hyatt in Kauai. Flaky and tender, this beautiful fish was so juicy and had a macadamia crust that was to die for. It was quite simply the best meal to end our wonderful trip. The boyfriend then made this dish for me on my last birthday and we decided to recreate it for our Kauai themed weekend. It was just as perfect (if not better) than I remembered. Beautifully golden on top, the crust had amazing crunch, texture, and was packed full of flavour. We had this along with the mango, pineapple and papaya salsa we made here and the entire meal was truly a Hawaiian delight and brought us right back to our favourite place on earth. This is such a simple, yet beautiful and sophisticated dish that’s perfect for any special occasion. 

We adjusted the cooking time for the mahi mahi. Use this as a guideline: for every inch of mahi mahi, bake for 10 minutes. Ours were slightly thicker than 1 inch so we cooked it for approxmiately 13 minutes, then broiled it for an additional 2-3 minutes, keeping a close eye to ensure the crust didn't burn.
