Ingredients 

½ cup wasabi peas
1 lb Mahi, cut into 4 equal fillets
2 lg eggs, beaten

Ponzu Sauce
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp low sodium tamari sauce
2 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp minced fresh ginger
2 tsp cane sugar

1 cup julienne yellow bell peppers
1 cup julienne carrots
1 tsp canola oil
2 cups cooked brown rice

Wasabi peas can be purchased in most grocery stores in the Asian food section of the grocery store.
Instructions 
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Grind ¼ cup wasabi peas into a fine flour using a coffee or spice grinder. Crush other ¼ cup of wasabi peas to make coarse crumbs. Dredge fish fillets in wasabi flour, then in beaten eggs, then in coarse wasabi crumbs. 
  3. Lightly coat a large sauté pan with canola oil spray. Bring to medium heat. Gently place fish in hot pan and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Transfer to a baking pan and finish in the oven for 5 to 8 minutes, or until fish reaches an internal temperature of 135F.
  4. Combine all ingredients for Ponzu Sauce in a blender container and puree until smooth. Strain.
  5. In a large sauté pan, heat canola oil over medium heat. Sauté peppers and carrots in oil until tender.
  6. Top each wasabi crusted fillet with 2 tablespoons Ponzu Sauce. Serve with ½ cup stir-fried vegetables and ½ cup brown rice.
