A note about serious food allergies

We're so close to getting back to the days of hopping on an airplane and going off to a warm, sandy, tropical locale. So close, but not quite yet… still, we can taste that nirvana in this meal. Sweet, subtle mahi, a tender amazing fish, gets topped by crunchy macadamias and panko, making a textural contrast of the soft and crunch. And the side of coconut rice is a little ray of sunshine all itself, bringing the waves and the relaxation just that much closer to reality.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and thinly slice green onions, keeping white and green portions separate.

    Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into 1/2" dice.
