    Cashews ¼ cup
    Salt ¼ teaspoon
    Freshly ground pepper to taste
    Mahi mahi 2 (6-ounce) filets

    2. Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper, then coat evenly on both sides with the ground nuts.
    3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add mahi mahi to skillet and cook until done (fish will flake easily with a fork when done), about 4 minutes per side.
