Hawaiian Crunch Halibut with Lemon Butter Sauce Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4 serving

Ingredients:

  • 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
How to cook Hawaiian Crunch Halibut with Lemon Butter Sauce:
  • 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.
  • Enjoy!
