These macadamia crusted mahi mahi bowls are a delicious low-carb meal that’s vibrant and packed with flavor. I love the quick cucumber avocado salsa which goes great with the nutty macadamia flavor and flaky fish.

This is an easy keto and Whole30 compliant meal as well! Be sure to watch the fish while baking to ensure the topping doesn’t get too dark. You can cover it with foil halfway through baking to prevent it from burning if needed.
