Almond-Crusted Halibut with Sesame-Tahini Coleslaw

6 comments

Using almond flour gives a nutty flavor to the fish, and when cooked creates a crunchy deep golden brown coating. Paired with this nutty fried Almond-Crusted Halibut we’ve created a delicious Sesame-Tahini Coleslaw, sprinkled with a few black sesame seeds for color.

Place ground almonds into a shallow dish and season with salt and pepper. Whisk egg and place into another shallow dish (or use melted butter). Melt the 3 Tbsp of butter into a non-stick fry pan. Meanwhile dip the fillets into the egg mixture, then dredge in almonds. Fry fillets on both sides until golden and cooked throughout.

    Cannot wait to try this recipe. Coming from WI we are so used to Friday night fish fries.
    I have not found a restaurant down here in Rogers, AR that understands what we mean.
    This just might mean that we stay home on Friday nights and “do our own thing”..
    Will let you know. Thanks
