Great Groceries: Almond-Crusted Halibut

Posted: Updated:

Almond-Crusted Halibut 

1 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt, divided
1 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper, divided
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups toasted almonds, finely chopped
2 tsp. lemon zest
1 1/2 lbs. skinless halibut fillet, cut into 4 pieces and patted dry
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
8 cups mixed salad greens
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 shallot, minced


Whisk flour, 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper in a bowl. In a separate bowl lightly beat eggs. In a third bowl, mix almonds and lemon zest. Season fish with salt and pepper. Dredge each piece in flour, then egg, and then almond mixture, pressing almonds onto fish.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add fish and cook, flipping once, until browned on both sides and flaky throughout, about 4 minutes per side.

Meanwhile, put greens in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk lemon juice, shallot, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Gradually whisk in remaining 1/2 cup olive oil. Toss greens with desired amount of vinaigrette. Top greens with halibut fillets. Drizzle remaining vinaigrette over each and serve.
