"This is an unbelievable Hawaiian recipe that utilizes native ingredients to create a succulent hot and sweet entree."
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a food processor or blender, pulse together macadamia nuts and breadcrumbs until finely ground. Pour nut mixture onto a plate, and coat fish fillets on both sides.
Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry fillets on both sides until nuts are golden brown. Remove to a baking pan.
Add shallots to skillet, and cook until translucent. Stir in chicken stock. Mix in pineapple, papaya, mango, coconut, and habanero peppers. Season with salt, pepper, and sugar to taste. Simmer until sauce is thick, about 30 minutes. Strain to remove peppers, fruit, and shallots. Reserve sauce in a pan over low heat.
Bake mahi mahi in preheated oven about 10 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 140 degrees F. Remove fish, and lightly coat with sauce.

Htbal 3y agoWe were very impressed ! What a great combination of flavors ( careful with the habaneros . Coconut gave a wonderful subtle flavor. I made 1/2 recipe for sauce. Used chunks of pineapple from the sauce to spoon over fish So delish. This was a tryout for our grandsons birthday dinner. Thanks
AztecFan 4y agoThis is a great recipe. We like hot so we tripled he habaneros (careful) and then we just poured all the fruit on top at the end instead of straining. Superb. Next time might do more fruit and have that just act as the side dish.
Kguchee 5y agoMade this in Hawaii- used what we had on hand! Didn't have the coconut, hablanos or chicken broth so we used small sweet peppers, white wine, POG juice and a chipotle powder in the chutney!! Yum!Yum
