Almond Crusted Halibut

I am a big fan of halibut.  I saw my grocery store had some nice fresh pieces for sale, so I bought a package and this is the recipe I came up with.  Enjoy!  :)


  • 1/2 lb peice of fresh halibut
  • 1 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 2/3 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • Corse sea salt, to taste

If Baking
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
If Frying
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Combine breadcrumbs and almonds and crush together with your fingers.

Remove skin from halibut if there is any.  Cut halibut lengthwise into 4 equal sized pieces. Whisk the egg and dip each piece of halibut into the egg mixture, then coat with flour (I like to flatten my fish out a bit when coating with the flour mixture).  When all the pieces of halibut have been coated, dip in egg mixture again before dipping into almond breadcrumb mixture. 

If Baking:

Place fish on a cookie sheet greased with olive oil.  Bake in pre-heated 425 degree oven for 20-30 minutes, or until fish is crispy.  Be sure to turn it once halfway through cooking.

If Frying:

Pre-heat your oil over medium heat. Fry each piece for about 3 minutes per side, or until the fish turns a deep golden brown color.

Place on a serving tray lined with lettuce.  Salt immediatly.
