MAX'S RITZ CRUSTED ALASKA HALIBUT FILLETS

An incredibly quick, easy and fabulous halibut dinner
my husband made the other night...


Servings: (4)
Prep: 5 Mins.
Cook: 5 to 7 Mins.

INGREDIENTS:

Frying:
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Halibut prep:
4 boneless, skinless halibut fillets (ensure they are of even 1" thickness)
Olive oil
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1/2 sleeve whole ritz crackers, finely crushed

Serving Sauce:
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup mayonnaise

METHOD:

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; add olive oil and butter.

Meanwhile, pat the halibut fillets dry with paper towels.  Brush all sides of fillets with olive oil, then sprinkle both sides as well with sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste.

Place ritz crackers in a small shallow dish, press halibut fillets in cracker crumbs to amply coat.

Fry fillets, not touching, in preheated skillet without moving for 3 to 4 minutes. Turn fillets over, and continue to fry without moving for 2 to 3 minutes longer.

Remove fillets from skillet to a platter and let juices redistribute (without covering).

While doing so, prepare sauce by whisking ketchup and mayonnaise in a small bowl, then serve alongside halibut fillets. ~ Enjoy!

Tip: We ate these incredible halibut fillets with a nice side dish consisting of a large green salad gently tossed with light vinaigrette...
