Last Saturday was my son’s seventh birthday. He requested a Hawaiian Luau for his party, complete with an authentic Hawaiian dinner. So I did the hard part. You guessed it, I ordered decorations from an on-line store and left the cooking to my husband.
He perused websites searching for a recipe similar to one we’d tasted when we went to Oahu in 2008 (sans children) and in true Gluten-Free family fashion, made it his own. Everyone, including the birthday boy, LOVED it.
If you’re not a fish person, don’t worry! Mahi Mahi is a mild fish that easily absorbs the flavor of the spices served with it. Best of all, it’s Gluten-Free! Next week, I’ll share the Hawaiian Rice Pilaf he made from scratch! 🙂
Macadamia Nut-Encrusted Mahi Mahi
Combine all ingredients except the Fish in a food processor. Pulse until combined and finely chopped. Lay a baking rack on a cooking sheet. Lightly Grease (cooking spray). Lay filet on rack. Sprinkle nut mixture on fish, carefully spreading it across the filet. Bake for 10-20 min depending on filet thickness. Fish should be flaky when cooked.
