Halibut coated with Macadamia nuts, coconut and panko crumbs, lightly sauted and topped with a delicious, health conscious Mango and Papaya Salsa. This is truly a winner in my family.

Mix together the Macadamia nuts, coconut and panko crumbs. Cut the halibut into serving size pieces. Heat the peanut oil in a saute pan to 350 degrees. Dredge the halibut lightly in the flour, dip into the coconut milk, and then into the crumb mixture. Saute approximately 5 minutes per side, until golden brown. The fish is done when it easily flakes with a fork. Serve with Hawaiian Style Mango & Papaya Salsa.

Place the prepared fruit into a mixing bowl, add all other ingredients and mix well. Let set two hours. This can be made up to five days in advance. Serve at room temperature or just warm. Do not boil, the fruit will fall apart.
