Hazelnut-Crusted Halibut with Apple Salsa Recipe

Yield: Serves 4
Total: 

Ingredients

  • HAZELNUT CRUST

  • 3/4 cup toasted, skinned hazelnuts
  • 1/8 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest 
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

  • FISH AND SALSA

  • Pacific halibut fillets, about 6 oz. each
  • 3 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons roasted hazelnut oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 1 3/4 cups chopped apple such as Fuji 
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice 
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves, plus leaves for garnish
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425°. Make crust: Whirl ingredients in a food processor until nuts are finely chopped.
  2. 2. Make fish: Brush halibut with butter, pat nut mixture all over fish, and set on a greased baking sheet. Cook just until fish is opaque in center, 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. 3. Make salsa: Heat oil in a medium frying pan over medium-low heat, add shallots and apple, and cook until slightly softened, about 2 minutes; remove from heat. In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice and remaining ingredients; stir into apple mixture. Serve halibut with apple salsa and sprinkle with a little more thyme.

Hmm...I'm not so sure about this one. I don't like apples or fruit on meats, generally. I am learning to like fish but apples or grapes or pineapple or....yeah, no. haha
