Macadamia and Panko Crusted Cod
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup dry white wine
- 1 small shallot, finely chopped
- 10 Tbsp. unsalted butter
- 1 cup roasted macadamia nuts, chopped
- 3/4 cup panko
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 4 (four ounce) cod fillets, patted dry
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
In a saucepan, bring orange juice, wine and shallot to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook until reduced, 10-12 minutes. Lower the heat and whisk in 6 tablespoons butter, one tablespoon at a time; season with salt and pepper.
Using a food processor, pulse the macadamia nuts with 1/4 cup panko until coarsely chopped. Transfer to shallow bowl and stir in the remaining 1/2 cup panko. Put the beaten eggs in a separate wide, shallow bowl. Season the fish with salt and pepper, dip in the egg and coat with the panko mixture.
Heat 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until melted. Add fillets and cook, turning once, until golden, about 8 minutes.
