Pistachio Encrusted Halibut
Here is a great dinner to prepare as the days get warmer. Nice and light and fresh.
- 1 cup chopped pistachios
- 1 cup coarse breadcrumbs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 4 each Alaskan Halibut fillets (5 oz each)
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Place pistachios, bread crumbs, salt and pepper together in a shallow baking dish, stir to combine.
Place eggs in separate dish and flour in another dish.
Take each portion of halibut and dredge only top side in flour, then eggs, then pistachio/bread crumb mixture, being careful to dredge top side only.
Heat olive oil in a sauté pan to medium heat.
Place breaded side of fish in hot oil and sear until golden brown; approximately 3-4 minutes.
Flip fish gently so breaded side of fish is on top, and finish in oven for approximately 8-10 minutes.
Remove fish from oven and plate.
Accompany with spring salad mix.
