This was one of the best fish recipes I have ever made. I would give it more stars if I could. It had the presentation of being gormet, but was extremely easy to make. I used mahi filets and followed the recipe exactly. For the nuts, I used walnuts. Also, I put it in the oven for 10-minutes at 350, then put it on broil for about 3 minutes longer to make the outside crispy. Thanks for a great recipe !
