Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi

Before we say good bye to the weekend here is a meal that will make you feel like you’re sitting in the midst of palm trees and sunshine, relaxing Island-style. 🌴The flavor of everything is incredible and will take you under 30 minutes to prepare.  Most recipes for encrusted fish include wheat breadcrumbs. This is a gluten-free paleo version I created tonight and it is absolutely phenomenal. The kids loved it too! Served this with my tropical pineapple coconut rice and garlic beans (see recipes for these under “sides” (serves 4)
