Herb Citrus Crusted Halibut
2 6 oz halibut portions
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 tbsp fresh basil, finely chopped
1 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 tbsp fresh mint, finely chopped
1 tbsp lemon zest
In a bowl combine the breadcrumbs, mint, basil, parsley, lemon zest. Season well with salt and pepper.
Add two tablespoons of olive oil, and mix well. If the mixture still seems pretty dry, and more oil until it clumps together well.
In a nonstick pan over a medium heat, get a couple of tablespoons of olive oil hot. Add in the fish and cook for about 5 minutes on the stove top, being careful not to let the oil get too hot.
Remove the pan from the heat and very carefully pile up the crusting mixture onto one side of the fish (try to use the side from which the skin was removed, which will be the darker side). Don’t worry if some spills off… just try to get a thick, even coating on one side of the fish.
Roast the fish in the oven for about 8 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and the crust is nicely browned.
Chipotle Lime Fish Tacos
6 oz halibut
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lime, juice
1 tbsp chipotle powder
1 tsp cumin, toasted and ground
4 corn tortillas
Marinate the fish in the oil, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper for 10-20 minutes.
Grill or broil the fish over medium-high heat until cooked, about 4-6 minutes per side. The fish will be cooked when it flakes easily and it is no longer translucent.
Flake the fish and serve in tortillas garnished with homemade salsa and your favorite toppings.
