Macadamia-Crusted Trout with Mustard Sauce


  • 2 oz macadamia nuts (chopped)
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
  • 12-16oz Trout fillets (skin on)
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt & pepper

Tarragon Mustard Sauce

  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • Salt & pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Prepare Crumb Mixture. Chop macadamia nuts and mix with bread crumbs, add salt & pepper. Combine with melted butter until the mixture comes together.
  3. Prepare trout fillets. Place fillets on a baking sheet greased with olive oil. Top fillets with bread crumb mixture, packing to create a firm crust.
  4. Bake trout. Bake the crusted trout fillets in the oven at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until the trout is cooked and the crust is brown.
  5. Prepare Sauce. In a medium saucepan over medium heat melt butter. Add wine, tarragon, and mustard. Bring to a simmer and reduce by ⅓. Stirring constantly, add cream. Simmer for another minute. Salt & pepper to taste, and serve over trout fillets.
