Unfortunatly this didn't turn out well for me. Macadamias are a very oily nut to begin with -- pan frying them in oil made for a very greasy dish. Also, I only had the heat on medium, but the coconut burned quickly. I think in the future I would either bake this in the oven, and/or use a "drier" nut like pecans or almonds.

I used snapper filets and instead of frying them, I baked them in the oven. The fish was moist and delicious and the crust did not get burned at all. I will make this again with different nuts and different tyes of fish. Thanks for sharing!

Made this a few weeks ago and it was fantastic! My hubby is a picky p.i.t.a and he loved it! I made it as it is posted but I used macademia nuts, so tasty. Thanks DiB for sharing.

This recipe was really disappointing. It sounds great on paper, but when I cooked it, the nuts burned before the fish was cooked through. I had to toss it all out - what a waste.

Very good - tasty and moist. We used cashews and ended up with at least one cup leftover cashews. Next time I'll use 1/2 cup instead of 2 cups nuts! But there WILL be a next time; everyone liked the recipe.

I have often had this variation in restaurants and wanted to find a recipe to use at home. I used a combination of macadamias cashews, and pistachios, on fresh sole. All looked well until the frying. Guess I had the heat too high..WOULD HAVE LIKED directions explaining the type of oil/butter and heat to be used. "FRY" just wasn't clear enough for me.
