Ingredients

Lemon Garlic Butter

  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Halibut

  • 2 fresh halibut fillets
  • 2 tablespoon lemon garlic butter (as per recipe set out above)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 tablespoon ground almonds

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Place the halibut fillets on a lined baking tray and set aside.
  2. Lemon Garlic Butter: In a blender or food processor, blend together the garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt and pepper until pureed. Add the butter and continue to blend until fully combined.
  3. Spread 1/2 tablespoon of the lemon garlic butter on the top surface of each halibut fillet, covering the surface completely. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper on top.
  4. Sprinkle 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of the ground almonds on each fillet and carefully spread over the butter to fully cover it.
  5. Bake the halibut for 5 minutes.
  6. While the halibut is still in the oven, change the oven to broil on high. Continue to cook for 5 more minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and serve hot with a teaspoon of the remaining lemon garlic butter on top.
