Almond crusted halibut with pineapple orange sauce

Recipe by:


  • Pineapple orange sauce
  • 2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 4 whole black peppercorns
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 2 tbsp. heavy cream
  • 1 cup (8 oz.) sweet (unsalted) butter
  • Almond crusted halibut
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 (6-oz.) pieces northern halibut
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup toasted coarsely chopped almonds
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • Kosher salt, to taste


For sauce:
Place orange juice, pineapple juice, soy sauce, shallot, peppercorns and sugar in a medium saucepan over high heat. Reduce to a syrup. Stir in cream, bring to a boil and remove from heat; let cool about 30 minutes. Place on medium heat and slowly whisk in butter. When all butter has been incorporated, remove from heat and pass through a fine strainer.

For halibut:
Heat a medium ovenproof sauté pan over high heat. Pour in olive oil and reduce heat to medium. Dust halibut in flour; place in pan and cook on both sides for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together almonds, bread crumbs, parsley and salt. Sprinkle almond mixture on top of fish and place in a preheated 350-degree oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven, place atop your favorite rice or mashed potatoes and pour the sauce around the fish.
