This delectable mahi mahi recipe combines that terrific tasting fish with butter and macadamia nuts.

It is a perfect combination. When I think of either of those ingredients, my thoughts go directly to Hawaii, that paradise on earth.

gluten free labellow carb labeldiabetic recipe


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup chopped macadamia nuts
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat leaf (Italian) parsley
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 skinless mahi mahi fillets ( each 6 ounces )
  • olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground pepper


Step 1

In a small bowl, combine the butter, nuts, parsley and lemon juice.

Prepare a hot fire in your grill.

Step 3

Rinse the fish and pat dry with paper towels. Brush the fish with olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Step 4

Place the fish flesh side down on the grill. Grill for 10 minutes per inch of thickness, turning once, until the fish is firm.

Step 5

Serve each fillet with a dollop of Macadamia butter.
