Macadamia- Crusted Mahi Mahi

1 cup panko (Japanese) bread crumbs
¾ cup macadamia nuts
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon white pepper
1 egg
2 tablespoons water
1/3 cup flour
4 mahi mahi fillets (4 ounces each)

Please the bread crumbs, nuts, salt and pepper in a food processor; cover and pulse until nuts are finely chopped.

In a shallow bowl whisk egg and water.  Place flour and nut mixture in separate shallow bowls.  Coat fillets with flour, then dip in egg mixture and coat with nut mixture.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook fillets for 304 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan combine the brown sugar, soy sauce, and ginger.  Heat until sugar is dissolved.  Drizzle over fish.
