Prep and cook time: 25 minutes Serves 4
¼ cup macadamia nuts
4 halibut fillets, 4 ounces each and 1-inch thick
1 tablespoon coconut oil
3 tablespoons honey
salt and pepper to taste
Chop nuts, spread on a cookie sheet, and toast in the oven or a toaster oven on 350 degrees until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. Check every minute or two and stir or spin tray around to toast evenly.
Rinse fish, pat dry with a paper towel, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a skillet. Cook one side of each fillet over medium heat for 4 minutes. Flip each fillet and cook for 3 minutes on the other side. While fish is in the pan, spread a thin layer of honey on each fillet and add a layer of nuts on top. Flip over and cook for 2 minutes while adding honey and nuts to the top side. Flip again and cook 2 minutes. Halibut is cooked when the meat is no longer translucent. Remove from heat and serve.
