Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 6
Categories: Fruits / Haven't Tried / Nuts / Seafood

1/2  pound  macadamia nuts, roasted and salted
1 1/2  cups  flour, divided
1    egg
3/4  cup  whole milk
6    halibut, or any white fish, 6 to 7 ounces each
    butter, to saute fillets
1/2  cup  white wine
8  ounces  crushed pineapple, drained, juice reserved
1/2  cup  whipping cream
1  cup  cold butter, cut into chunks

1. In food processor, combine nuts and 3/4 cup flour. Process until nuts are chopped medium to fine.

2. Make egg wash by beating together egg and milk. Dust fillets with remaining flour, then dip into egg wash, then in the nut mixture.

3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Saute fillets in butter top side first, until golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn fillets and saute another 1 to 2 minutes to brown other side. Transfer to baking pan and finish cooking in preheated oven, 10 to 15 minutes or until fish are done.

4. While fish cooks, make pineapple sauce: In medium pan, combine wine, juice from canned pineapple, and cream. Cook over low heat until mixture thickens enough to coat back of spoon, stirring constantly. This should take about 10 minutes. Whisk in 1 cup cold butter and stir until melted. Add reserved pineapple and heat through. Divide pineapple sauce among 6 plates. Put 1 fillet over sauce on each plate.
