Almond-encrusted halibut

Recipe by:Chad Minton
The Ritz-Carlton, Marina Del Rey

Ingredients

  • ½ cup blanched, sliced almonds, finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 lime
  • 1 halibut filet
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Mixed salad greens
  • Chives

Directions

Lightly beat egg with wire whisk. Add a squeeze of lime and whisk again. Dip halibut in egg mixture, making sure fish is very lightly coated. Roll filet gently in almonds and coat both sides. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a Teflon pan over moderately hot heat. Add halibut and sear on each side for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Do not handle or almonds will fall off. Place in hot oven, about 450 degrees for 4 minutes. Plate fish on top of mixed greens, mixed with snipped chives and dressed with honey-mustard vinaigrette. Garnish with sliced cherry tomatoes.
