Macadamia-Crusted Salmon Recipe

One evening when my husband and I went out to dinner, he ordered a salmon dish that sounded interesting. It was wonderful. When I tried duplicating it at home, he said mine was as good as, if not better than, the original. That made my day!
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 2 salmon steaks (about 1-1/8 inches thick)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Hot cooked rice


  • 1. Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper. In a shallow bowl, whisk egg white until frothy. Dip fish in egg white, then coat with nuts. Gently pat nut mixture onto fish.
  • 2. In a large skillet, cook fish in oil over medium heat for about 6-8 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Meanwhile, melt butter. Stir in parsley and lemon juice. Drizzle over fish. Serve with rice. Yield: 2 servings.

"So delicious. Don't cook it in a cast iron pan, though, I burned the nuts."

"A really great use of macademia nuts. The salmon was delicious. However, because of the super-high calories in this meal, it isn't one I'll make too frequently."

"I think I overcooked the fish. I'll probably give this one another try, but the rest of my family was real thrilled with the it."
