  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.
  4. Transfer fish to preheated oven, and roast until cooked through. Cover the sea bass with macadamia crust, and return to the oven until crust browns. Top with the mango cream sauce.

This is the best fish recipe I have ever prepared. I served it on a large white platter with the sauce poured across the middle of each piece and garnished with mache and add'l chopped macadamia...

This recipe was awesome! An easy $30+ entree at any elegant restaurant. Hubby, who is slowly starting to like more fish, loved this! I love all kinds of fish so I knew it would be a keeper. ...

Delicious and easy to prepare. For the reviewer who had difficulty with the mango sauce: I used a combination of fat free half and half and skim milk so I don't think that's the problem. I do ...

My husband and I love this recipe because of the texture that the nuts give the sea bass along with the contrasting salty and sweet taste of the garlic and fish mixing with the mango sauce. This...

Outstanding dish! I pureed the mango sauce in a blender for a smoother texture. Plus, the recipe called for baking after applying the crust; instead I broiled for just a few minutes until gold...

this is delicious although i used lesscrema in the sauce because the fish is rich enough on its own.
