RV Recipes: Pistachio Crusted Halibut

 RV Recipes: Pistachio Crusted Halibut

Got a hankering for fish? Here’s a simple recipe you can prepare in an RV Convection oven, on the stovetop or in a cast iron skillet outdoors on a grill.

Halibut is currently readily available in the fresh fish section of the grocery store.  I plan to serve the leftovers for dinner tomorrow, perhaps as the protein in soft tacos!

Serves 2 and leftovers for 2 the following day

Ingredients

1 1/2                 fresh halibut

1 tsp                 vegetable oil

1 tsp                 butter

2/3 cup           pistachio nuts

1                       lemon

Directions

  1.  Rinse halibut, pat dry, cut fish into 4 equal sized filets
  2.  Place filets in cooking pan.  Pour oil into the pan and roll the halibut in the oil.
  3.  Rough chop shelled pistachios, medium coarse grain slightly larger dice than Panko.  
  4.  Set cooking heat to med/high or if using convection set oven to 375 F.
  5.  Roll 1 side of the fish in pistachio, place in cooking pan nut side facing upward.
  6.  Cut butter into 4 – 6 dabs and place on top of the filets.
  7.  Wash the lemon, cut in wedges, set aside.
  8.  Cook fish until it is opaque throughout but still moist.  Don’t overcook but check to see that the fish is not clear and shiny in the center.  Note:  Fish is cooked at 145 F when checked in the mid section of the filet using a temperature probe.
  9.  Squeeze a wedge of lemon over the filets and serve with a fresh lightly cooked vegetable or as an alternate serve with a fresh salad.
