Coconut crusted halibut

>> Monday, September 21, 2009

Tonight I decided to experiment with creating a sauce to marinate my halibut in before I encrusted it in a fine coconut and lightly fried up to perfection. Good idea? Absolutely! So, here goes.

For the first part of the recipe you need:

Halibut (1 pound)
Cilantro (chopped)
Scallions (chopped)
Leeks (chopped)
Cream (1/2 cup)
Egg (1)

In a food processor, combine the above ingredients and mix well. Pour into a large bowl. Bathe the halibut in your sauce mixture and let it marinate.

For the second part of the recipe, you need:

Finely shredded coconut
Cracked pepper

On a plate, combine flour, coconut salt and pepper. Remove your halibut from the marinade and coat lightly in the coconut mixture.

In a large heavy skillet, heat 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Add in halibut and cook, turning every 2 to 3 minutes. If there is a skin on the halibut, remove when it comes loose from cooking.

For a side, I paired the halibut with fresh soy beans. In a small skillet, heat the soy beans in a spot of olive oil.

In a small sauce pan, heat the remaining sauce you made earlier until it just thickens.

Remove all pans from the heat. Plate the soy beans and top with halibut. Add a dollop of the sauce atop the halibut. Enjoy!
