How to cook Hawaiian Crunch Halibut with Lemon Butter Sauce
- 4 skinless, boneless halibut fillets (about 5-6 ounces each)
- 16-18 soda crackers, crushed
- 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
- 16-20 pistachios nuts, chopped (if you prefer a different nut, go ahead and use it. Macadamia nuts, pecans or almonds are also very good)
- Flour (enough to coat each side of your fillets)
- 2 eggs, beaten until frothy
- Salt and freshly grated black pepper to taste
- 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
- Lemon Butter Sauce:
- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon parsley flakes
- 1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel (optional)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 1/2 cups milk or half & half
- Fresh juice of 1 lemon (use 1/2 of the lemon if you want a mild lemon taste)
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder (or you can use garlic powder)
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- Chop the nuts, place the soda crackers in a Zip-lock bag and crush them, using a rolling pin.
- Add the Panko crumbs, in the same bag. Mix all together. Add salt and pepper.
- Rinse the fish fillets and pat dry with a paper towel.
- Dredge each piece of Halibut into the flour, and shake off the excess.
- Dip in beaten egg and roll over breadcrumbs to coat all sides.
- Heat 2-3 tablespoons of oil over medium heat. (I also add a tablespoon of butter. You can’t use butter alone, or it will burn!)
- Fry the halibut fillets until every side is golden brown, about 3-4 minutes on each side.
- To prepare the Lemon Butter Sauce: In a small saucepan melt butter. Stir in flour parsley flakes, lemon peel, salt, pepper, onion powder, and sugar.
- Mix well, then slowly whisk in milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Add the lemon juice and cook for 1 minute more, stirring constantly.
- If the sauce is too thick for you, simply add more milk or chicken broth to thin.
- You could also prepare the sauce first, and then turn it to a very low heat, and cover with a lid.
- Pour a generous amount of hot lemony sauce on your serving plate.
- Place that crunchy Halibut on top of the sauce, and drizzle more over the top.
- Garnish the Hawaiian Crunch Halibut with Lemon Butter Sauce with parsley and a slice of lemon.
