Who doesn’t love a tasty, crunchy fish fillet? Sure, bread crumbs are typically a no-no for the Thermo Diet, but there are plenty of other ways to add a little “batter” to your fish dish. And crushed macadamia nuts is just one of them.

This particular recipe calls for a type of fish called “mahi-mahi.” Fish is known to have several health benefits, but you don’t have to limit yourself to just salmon or other common types of fish. To change things up a bit, consider throwing mahi-mahi into the mix.

Try This: Thermo-Friendly Thai Macadamia Mahi-Mahi

This exotic-sounding fish is loaded in protein at 20.2g per 3-ounce serving. Further, mahi-mahi is a complete source of protein, which means it’s got all the essential amino acids the body needs.

An interesting ingredient in this particular recipe is the macadamia nuts. Many health-conscious people thrive on these types of nuts because of how much healthy fats they contains and how filling they can be. Macadamia nuts are chock full of all sorts of amazing micronutrients, including healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, fiber, vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium, copper, iron, manganese, zinc, potassium and selenium.

This recipe is totally worthy of the Thermo Diet. It features some of the healthiest ingredients, including wild-caught fish and coconut oil. It’s also void of health blockers, such as grains, legumes and vegetable oils.

With foods such as the ones included in this Macadamia Crusted Mahi, you can promote a healthier lifestyle. You’ll have more energy, better cognitive function and less anxiety than you’ve ever had in your life. You’ll also benefit from looking younger, burning more body fat efficiently and getting a better night’s sleep.
