Specialty Recipe

Halibut Breaded in Macadamia Nuts with Coconut Curry Mango Sauce

Ingredients:
1-1/4 pound fresh Halibut, cut into 4 filets
7 ounces roasted macadamia nuts
2 Tablespoons flour plus 1/2 cup or so for dredging fish
1 egg beaten with 2 Tablespoons water
1/3 teaspoon cayenne
4 Tablespoons butter (clarified butter is necessary if cooking large quantities)
One 14-ounce can coconut milk
1 Tablespoon peanut oil
1 Tablespoon Taste of Thai Red Curry Paste (start with less, then taste to adjust - it is hot!)
1/2 cup Major Grey Chutney, large chunks chipped fine
1 fresh mango, peeled with seed removed, diced small
2 to 3 Tablespoons fresh cilantro, sliced fine

Combine nuts and 2 Tablespoons flour in food processor, pulsing so as not to over chop and become sticky. Beat cayenne into egg with a fork. Dredge filet first in flour, then egg, then nuts, pressing nuts onto fish. Refrigerate breaded fish while starting sauce.

Heat 2 Tablespoons peanut oil in a heavy saucepan. Add curry paste and cook one minute, whisking. Add coconut milk and chutney; bring to a boil. Boil lightly until milk is reduced to 1/2 its original volume or to desired thickness. Turn heat off and cover to keep warm.

Melt butter in large saute pan over medium heat. Add halibut and fry until deep golden brown, then turn to brown other side. If filets are very thick, place in 400-degree oven for 8 minutes after browning to finish cooking.

Just before fish is done, add chopped mango and cilantro to sauce. Serve sauce over fish sprinkled with a little more cilantro for color interest and perhaps a whole cilantro leaf.

Serve with Jasmine Rice.

This recipe is adapted from Chef Jack Amon of Marx Brothers Cafe.
