Recipe Chef: Ross Warren
Recipe Name: Halibut Parmesan
Type of Cuisine: Fresh Seafood
Food Category: Main Course

Recipe Description:
Firm and flaky halibut baked with a crisp Parmesan crust.

Serves: 1



1 egg
1 tablespoon water
¼ cup flour
8 ounce halibut filet
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2-3 tablespoons clarified butter


1. Preheat oven to 375°. Make an egg wash by beating the egg and water together with fork until well combined. Put the flour on a plate and drag the halibut through the flour until the fish is completely covered. Shake off the excess flour.

2. Put the egg wash in a wide shallow bowl and coat the floured fish with the egg wash.

3. Put the Parmesan cheese in a wide shallow bowl and drag the fish filet through it until it is completely coated.

4. Melt the butter in heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high head. Put the fish in the pan and brown both sides, about 2-3 minutes for each side. Place the fish in the oven for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, depending on Halibut thickness, or until the fish is opaque and a paring knife slips easily into the center of the filet.

Serving Suggestions:
Plate with fries, rice, or steamed red potatoes, and garnish with lemon and parsley.

Beverage Suggestions:
This fish pairs nicely with a crisp Sauvignon Blanc, a buttery Chardonnay, or a bright and green Vinho Verde.
