Rub fish with salt and pepper, 1/4 teaspoon of the olive oil, thyme, and tarragon. Press 1 tablespoon of the chopped macadamia nuts on each side. Put garlic, shallots, and 2 tablespoons olive oil in saute pan and heat on high until oil bubbles. Carefully place fish in the pan and sear about 15 seconds on each side for rare; 30 seconds on each side for medium rare. If you prefer well done fish, start at a low heat and saute until done. This preparation can be done with mahi mahi or ono too.
Serve with your favorite starch and vegetables.
