- 2 slices halibut little less than 1 lb
- 1/2 cup shelled walnuts
- 1 cup fresh basil leaves rinsed, loosely packed
- Pinch of coarse sea salt
- Fresh ground pepper
Preheat oven 375
Salt and pepper the halibut.
Place the walnuts and Basil in a food processor with metal blade and pulse for just a few seconds (you still want some chopped walnuts left, not a paste)
Place the halibut skin-side down on a rack on top of a baking sheet in preheated oven and cover with the walnut basil mixture.
Bake for 20 minutes.
When ready to serve, use a spatula to lift the halibut off the rack (the skin will peel off and stay behind on the rack--perfect!)
