Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons coarse grained Dijon mustard
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cups pecans, finely chopped
1 1/4 cups fresh or dried breadcrumbs
8 (6-ounce) skinless halibut fillets
1/4 cup butter

Preparation

Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl. Whisk mustard and eggs in another shallow bowl. Combine pecans and breadcrumbs in a third shallow bowl.

Dredge each halibut fillet in flour mixture, shaking off excess. Dip halibut in egg mixture to coat; drain excess. Place halibut in pecan mixture, pressing slightly to coat both sides of the fillet.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add fillets, in batches, and cook 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned, adding additional butter as needed. Arrange fillets on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until done. Serve with Dijon Cream Sauce.
