I like using almonds in various recipes.  This recipe uses almonds with halibut fillets.  There are many recipes that incorporate almonds into a paste that is spread over the halibut.  Some have multiple ingredients and can be richer than the recipe I made.  Both the DH and I enjoyed this recipe and I will make it again.

The halibut is on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. It is ready to go into the oven.

Plated and ready to eat.

Halibut Almondine

12 to 16 ounces halibut fillets or steaks, frsh or frozen
salt and pepper to taste
3 tbsp finely chopped almonds or slivers
2 tbsp melted butter or margarine
2 tbsp lemon juice


Sprinkle halibut steaks with salt and pepper. Combine ground almonds and butter.   Line a shallow baking dish or sheet with parchment paper.  Spread 1/3 of almond mixture in the baking dish and then place the halibut steaks on top of the almond mixture.  Spoon remaining almond mixture over halibut.   Drizzle with lemon juice.

Bake at 400ºF for 10 minutes per inch of thickness, measured at thickest part, or until halibut flakes when tested with a fork.
