Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Rinse halibut and pat dry. Place in a baking dish and drizzle coconut oil all over it.
  3. Let marinate for 15 minutes or longer. It is important to drizzle oil before adding the lime juice because the juice will begin to “cook” the fish. Adding the oil first provides protection against this.
  4. Mix coconut and macadamia nuts (and pistachio nuts if desired) together onto a plate. Roll the fish in the nut mixture and then, using your hands, pat the additional mixture into fish. Place back in baking dish and pour remaining nut mixture on top. Cover baking dish with foil.
  5. Bake for 12 minutes, then turn the broiler on. Remove foil and allow the broiler to brown the coating.
  6. Serve immediately.
