This recipe was awesome! An easy $30+ entree at any elegant restaurant. Hubby, who is slowly starting to like more fish, loved this! I love all kinds of fish so I knew it would be a keeper. Some substitutions I made: I used Del Monte jarred mango in extra light syrup because the store didnt have fresh. Also, I was told at the fish market that sea bass is not in season right now, so I used a nice fresh halibut fillet instead. I also used fresh garlic, which makes a world of difference in any recipe.
As I was making this, hubby kept hanging around the kitchen - just smelled too good to keep him away! After pan searing it per the directions, I baked it at 400 degrees for 15 min. (I had a pretty thick halibut fillet so 350 would have taken forever) and that was perfect. After adding the macadamia crust, I broiled it for about a minute. Any longer and it would have burned, but it came out perfect!! The fish, the crust, and the mango sauce all work so well together. I sauteed up some zuchinni and made mushroom risotto as my sides. I can't wait to try the recipe again with sea bass. I'm going to make this for my parents for their anniversary, its that good.
FYI - Definitely use macadamias - even though they can be expensive, the flavor is worth it!
