Hazelnut Crusted Halibut



This was delish and pretty easy to make. We had mashed garlic potatoes and it went real well with the fish.



1/4 Cup Hazelnuts

1/4 Cup Seasoned Bread Crumbs (I only had plain bread crumbs, so I added Creole Seasoning to the bread crumbs.  I make my own Creole Seasoning ……….and you can find the recipe          HERE

2 Halibut Fillets

1/4 Teaspoon Salt

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

6 Tablespoons Butter, divided  ( 1 tablespoon and 5 tablespoons)

3 Tablespoons Vegetable Broth

HOW TO:  oven @ 500°

In a food processor, pulse the nuts and bread crumbs until finely ground…but Not into a paste.  Sprinkle nut mix into a shallow dish.   Set aside. 

Season the halibut on both sides with salt.  Then gently press One Side of the halibut into the nut mixture.  Set aside.

Heat olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter in an ovenproof skillet over medium to high heat.   Place the halibut NUT-SIDE-UP into the skillet.  Cook till halibut begins to brown (3-4 minutes).  Turn halibut over and place into the preheated oven.  Bake nut-side-down till halibut flakes easily with a fork (about 5 minutes).

Melt 5 tablespoons of butter until it turns a nut brown color then stir in the vegetable broth and bring to a simmer.

Drizzle the browned butter sauce over the halibut after the halibut is fully cooked/baked.
