Golden Freshwater Clam

Sesame marinated tilapia recipe

There are nine species of Macadamia, but only two of them are commonly found in grocery stores: Macadamia integrifolia and Macadamia tetraphylla. Both are native to Australia but are today grown commercially in other parts of the world as well. Macadamia nuts are toxic to dogs, so don’t let your dog taste this delicious dish.

If you don’t have a food processor you can chop the ingredients using a knife, but it is a bit cumbersome.


  • 4 (6 ounce) tilapia fillets
  • 10 ounces of macadamia nuts
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper


  1. Preheat your oven's broiler.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminium foil.
  3. Place the macadamia nuts in a food processor and add garlic, soy sauce, hot sauce, brown sugar, olive oil and black pepper. Blend until you have a paste.
  4. Place the tilapia fillets on the aluminium foil and cover each fillet with a thick layer of macadamia paste.
  5. Cook the fillets under the broiler until the nut crust is golden brown and the fish can be easily flaked with a fork. This will typically take around 15 minutes.
