A great halibut recipe that has hazelnut meal, egg whites and grass fed butter. So it's as healthy as it is delicious!
  • 1½ lbs halibut
  • ½ c hazelnut or almond meal
  • 1 egg plus 2 egg whites
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 T grass fed butter
Simple Salad, optional
  • 4 c baby greens of your choice
  • ½ c sliced cherry tomatoes
  • ½ c cooked green beans
  • ¼ c crumbled sheep feta
  • Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette
  1. If serving over salad, prepare salad now so it is ready to go.
  2. Add hazelnut flour to a pie plate (or any dish with sides) and season with salt and pepper.
  3. In another one, whisk together 1 egg plus 2 egg whites.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°. Heat a large oven-safe skillet over medium to medium high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of butter plus 1 tablespoon oil (you may need extra if it's a large skillet - you want the entire bottom coated). Allow this to heat up.
  5. Quickly dredge the fish into hazelnut meal mixture, then egg wash. Repeat with each piece of fish. Cook for about 4 minutes (the fish should have a nice golden crust), lift fish out of pan with a spatula. Flip and repeat.
  6. Place entire skillet into the oven or transfer to baking dish and allow to finish cooking (about 4-7 minutes depending on fish size). When fish is fully cooked (opaque in color), remove from oven and immediately serve over mixed salad. Top with cilantro lime vinaigrette.
