POINTS® Value: 4

Servings: 4

Preparation Time: 8 min

Cooking Time: 12 min

Level of Difficulty: Easy

Sounds fancy but it’s super easy and works well with just about any thin fish fillet and any kind of nuts. Try striped bass with pecans or salmon with pistachios.*


2 spray(s) cooking spray

3 Tbsp dry-roasted salted macadamia nuts, chopped

1/4 cup(s) dried bread crumbs, panko (Japanese variety)

2 Tbsp parsley, or cilantro, fresh, minced

3/4 tsp table salt, divided

1 pound(s) mahi mahi fillet(s), without skin

1 large egg white(s), whipped to soft peaks


Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a baking pan with cooking spray; place pan in oven to heat.
Place nuts, panko, parsley (or cilantro) and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a mini chopper or blender; process until combined. Pour crumbs into a shallow bowl or plate; set aside.
Place fish on a plate; rub 1/2 teaspoon salt all over fish. Dip fish into egg white; turn to coat. Next, dip fish into nut mixture; turn to coat.
Remove pan from oven and place fish on pan. Roast until center of fish is no longer translucent, about 10 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately. Yields about 4 ounces fish per serving.


Garnish with salt and pepper if desired.
