  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • ½ cup chopped macadamia nuts

  • ¼ cup seasoned bread crumbs

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 cloves minced garlic

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil


  1. In a food processor, combine macadamia nuts, bread crumbs, 1 teaspoon olive oil, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Process until smooth. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine mango, cream, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until thickened.

  3. Season fish with salt and black pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and crushed garlic in a large skillet over medium heat. Sear the sea bass on both sides, and remove from heat.
