In a food processor or blender, pulse together macadamia nuts and breadcrumbs until finely ground.

Pour nut mixture onto a plate, and coat fish fillets on both sides.

Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat.

Fry fillets on both sides until nuts are golden brown.

Remove to a baking pan.

Add shallots to skillet, and cook until translucent.

Stir in chicken stock.
