- 12-16 oz Fresh Halibut

Lemon Dill Sauce
- ¼ cup Butter divided
- ½ Small shallot pressed or finely minced
- 3 Garlic cloves pressed or minced
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- ⅓ cup Dry white wine
- ¼ cup Finely chopped fresh dill
- Zest of 1 lemon
- ⅔ cup Heavy cream
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 F, Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix together almond flour, garlic powder, onion powder, salt. Set aside.
If Halibut is in one piece, cut into 2 steaks. Ideally you’ll want them to be 1" or more in thickness.
Pat halibut pieces dry with some paper towel, season salt and pepper.
Brush all sides of halibut pieces lightly with mayo, then roll in almond mixture.
Place crusted halibut on prepared baking pan. Set aside while you start the sauce:
Lemon Dill Sauce
In a small saucepan, melt about 1 Tbsp butter. Add shallot and garlic, cook for two minutes, or until softened and aromatic.
Whisk in remaining butter and dijon mustard until well incorporated.
Slowly add white wine, whisking as you go. Bring mixture to a simmer, simmer for 2 minutes.
Add dill, lemon zest, and heavy cream, whisking until smooth.
Bring mixture back up to a simmer.
As the sauce starts to simmer, place halibut in the oven, set the timer for 15 minutes (18 minutes if the fish is more than 1.5" thick)
Continue simmering the sauce as the fish cooks, stirring frequently as it reduces in volume.
Once the fish is done cooking - it’ll flake easily - Place the fish on your serving plates, top with sauce.
Note: If you’re serving asparagus with this, start the water heating when the fish goes in the oven. Put the asparagus in the simmering water when there’s 2 minutes left on the timer.
Additionally,nutritional info is calculated based on ALL ingredients, but you won't use all of the cashew flour mix or sauce.
