one of my favourite ways to prepare fresh halibut.
Shared by Lori (Hoopysmom) Gardenweb Source:Recipe from Ray’s Boathouse
1/2 cup flour
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons water
2 cups Panko bread crumbs
(NOTE: I never use panko.
I prefer fresh made bread crumbs)
1 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
Zest of 1 lemon,
(use a microplane to zest the lemon)
4 6-oz halibut fillets, skin removed
3 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat oven to 450°F.
Place flour in one bowl, beat eggs and water place in 2nd bowl,
combine fresh bread crumbs, Parmesan and lemon zest in 3rd bowl.
Lightly salt and pepper the halibut fillets.
Dredge the fillets in flour, next dip in egg and then coat with bread crumb mixture.
Heat olive oil in ovenproof pan.
Saute the fillets on medium-high until golden-brown crust forms.
Turn fillets over and place pan in preheated oven. Roast until centers are pearly white and opaque.
