Step 1
Combine slaw mix, pineapple and green onion, cilantro, rice vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce in a large bowl and set aside. Let flavors combine for about 20 minutes.
Step 2
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Thaw the fish and rinse under cold water. Use paper towel to pat each fillet very dry.
Step 3
In a food processor, chop macadamia nuts until the consistency of bread crumbs. Mix together nuts, panko and cayenne pepper. In a separate small bowl whisk egg with coconut milk. Salt and pepper both sides of the barramundi fillets.
Step 4
Fill the bottom of a cast iron skillet with the olive oil and place on stovetop over med-high heat. Once the oil is heated up, dip fish in egg mixture then coat both sides with panko nut mixture. Place fish in hot skillet and cook 3 minutes on each side.
Step 5
Squeeze lime over the fillets and place cast iron skillet in the oven and bake for another 10 minutes or until firm.
Step 6
Once fish fillets are finished baking, plate the meal by adding a cup or two of the pineapple slaw salad to a plate and top with the macadamia crusted fish. Enjoy!
