    Its a pity that my husband dosent eat fish.He is missing out on such a tasty thing in life 🙂 I love fish..This sounds and looks AMAZING..Love the tropical flavors here..they always work for me..

  25. Peggy says:

    The only thing that would make this meal even better to me is to be sitting beach-front eating it! But I’ll settle for the Ohio River if I have to =)

  26. Julie says:

    Oh this looks amazing!! I love love macadamia nuts.

  27. Brian has tried to convince me for years that mahimahi is dolphin. As in Flipper. And so I’ve never had the guts to try it even though I know he is lying! Although I think this preparation might be totally worth it!!!!!

  28. Wow, that looks delicious, Joanne! So cool to see your posts on Marcus’ site 🙂

  29. Veronica says:

    Are you aware that there is a picture of meat on your blog? Just makin’ sure. LOL, just teasin’, I know you said you weren’t going to say you were going veg permanently, but I was surprised anyway! This look so beautiful with all that color going on–fabulous pics (and writing) as always!

  30. Chris says:

    OMG it is such a beautifully cooked and plated dish that I almost forget it is fish! Excellent job, J.

    You reminded me I need to chop up the pineapple on my counter!

  34. Carolyn Jung says:

    What a beautiful golden, crunchy crust on that fish. I like this version of a pina colada. You don’t have to worry about a breathalizer test. 😉

  35. kellypea says:

    I LOVE fruit-salsa so much. I’m not sure I would have said that five years ago. The nice thing about this recipe is no hangover the next day. Unless I also have the piña colada. 😉

  36. Joanne! I haven’t visited your fabulous blog in ages. What a shame; Im sorry! I will be back soon though. And this recipe looks just fabuulous. Coconut and macadamia crust sounds heavenly..

  37. Love love this! I definitely can this every day!

  38. Megan says:

    Great minds! We both posted fish dishes with fruity salsa today! It looks phenomenal.

  39. I really wish my husband would eat coconut. It paradises’ most decadent fruit! This looks amazing.

  40. I love macadamias – one of my all time favourite nuts lol! Iv never had mahimahi but it looks delicious 🙂

  41. Beautiful–macadamia nuts make such a great crust and with the coconut too. This looks like a Hawaii dish. 😉

  42. Anything macadamia nut works for me…especially with a gorgeous fruit salsa like yours! Yum!

  43. Kevin says:

    That mahimahi is perfectly gold brown and what a topping!

  44. megi says:

  47. i made mahi mahi a few nights ago… it didn’t look like this… just sayin!

  48. This is my kind of summer dish! Love it.

  49. I love love love fish encrusted in coconut and macadamia nuts! Oh, so tropical! Oh, so delish! I just saw Marcus for the first time the other day (on TV, not in person 🙂 and he was making mac ‘n’ cheese with rice milk. Not sure how I feel about that… but you’re a fan so I’m a fan 🙂 I must try this fish- one of my favorite ways to make it!

  50. Hi Joanne, I apologize for my extended absence from commenting (as I have been on all the blogs that I love to follow!). I finally even added your blog to my fave blog list too (I’m slow!). I am just now catching up with your delicious posts after being gone on 2 week vacay, starting back up summer school teaching, and visiting fam. Busy, busy! I had to begin with this marvelous fish recipe. I made a similar one last year and simply must try your recipe! Nothing like those mac-nut crusted fish entrees! Yummy! Hope that you can stop by this week to my “new” foodie friday/seasonal saturday round-up. Would be honored to feature your delicious recipes! Hugs, Roz
