|An incredibly quick, easy and fabulous halibut dinner|
my husband made the other night...
Prep: 5 Mins.
Cook: 5 to 7 Mins.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
4 boneless, skinless halibut fillets (ensure they are of even 1" thickness)
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1/2 sleeve whole ritz crackers, finely crushed
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup mayonnaise
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...
