Macadamia Nut Encrusted Ahi

Hooray! I finally have some pictures and recipes to share!

To start with... we kind of ran out of money in Hawaii. Like, transferring money off of credit cards ran out of money. And we did not go to a luau (although I hear that they can be really hit or miss, so prolly best NOT to spend the $100/person to either not get food or get food poisoning...) but I had this flyer that boasted what I thought would be a pretty awesome menu:

Sauteed Mahi Mahi with Lemon Macadamia Nut Butter
Sweet Bread Rolls
Molokai Sweet Potatoes
Stir-fry Vegetables
Island Style Fried Rice
Maui Grown Lettuce Bar
Potato Mac Salad (I love this for some reason, despite not liking macaroni salad for the most part)
Green Papaya Salad
Lomi Lomi Salmon
Fresh Poi
Maui Gold Pineapple
Kula Strawberries
Cucumber Namasu Salad

So yeah. We did not go there.. but- I managed to pull together a feast of a dinner and lunch the next day with only $40. Bite me, overpriced luaus!

Here's what I did:

Bought a pound of macadamia nuts. Ground them up in a blender. Then added some sweet bread:

For a bit of bread-y-ness, of course. Then, I dredged some ahi steaks in it, and put it in a pan. I drizzled it with lemon juice, and added a few bits of pineapple and some juice from the core of it.

Bake at 350* for about 25-30 minutes. I wanted it to be really done (not seared or anything) so I waited it out. And it was GOOD! I will totally have to make this again sometime, when I actually have things like cooking spray and spices at my disposal. :)
