  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees (F), line a small baking pan w/ tin foil.
  • Brush the lined baking pan and the top of the mahi-mahi fillets w/ the coconut oil, sprinkle the fish with salt & pepper, then bake for 5 minutes.
  • While fish is baking, combine cashews, coconut, seafood seasoning, garlic clove, coconut flour, and cilantro in a small food processor or personal blender and pulse until coarse crumbs are formed. Pour crumbs onto a small plate.
  • Remove the mahi-mahi from the oven then gently press all sides of the fillets into the coconut-cashew mixture.
  • Add any remaining crumbs to the top of the fish (it's too good to waste!) then continue to bake for 8-10 minutes or until fish is cooked through.
  • Serve immediately with a squeeze of fresh lemon and a side of freshly grilled veggies and caramelized pineapple.
  • Enjoy!
