Recipes We Love: Citrus Macadamia Nut Sole

image via

AKT Trainer Ariel Hoffman loves to make this easy meal from Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo:


  • 1⁄4 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest
  • 1 lb. lemon sole, or other white fish, or substitute salmon (thawed if previously frozen)
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or melted butter
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


Preheat oven to a low broil setting.

In a small mixing bowl, combine the macadamia nuts, lemon zest, black pepper and sea salt (to taste). Set aside.

Place the sole on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil, then top evenly with butter or coconut oil and nut/zest topping.

Place the fish in the broiler and cook approximately 8 minutes or until opaque white all the way through and fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve with lemon wedges.

Pairs well with mixed greens with roasted sliced beets, tangerine segments, and homemade balsamic vinaigrette.
