1 cup chopped pistachios
1 cup coarse breadcrumbs
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
4 skinless fillets halibut, 5 ozs. each
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil


Preheat oven to 350 degrees 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 saute pan to medium heat. Place breaded side of fish in hot oil and sear until golden brown; approximately 3 to 4 minutes.

Flip fish gently so breaded side of fish is on top, and finish in oven for approximately 8 to 10 minutes.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
Been trying to find a recipe for halibut that I like (trying to eat more fish). This one finally did it for me! I really liked the flavor and texture that the breadcrumb/pistachio coating gave it. Just the right amount of nutty/salty flavor. Thank you for sharing this recipe!! I love this website!
