How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°. Make crust: Whirl ingredients in a food processor until nuts are finely chopped.

Step 2

Make fish: Brush halibut with butter, pat nut mixture all over fish, and set on a greased baking sheet. Cook just until fish is opaque in center, 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 3

Make salsa: Heat oil in a medium frying pan over medium-low heat, add shallots and apple, and cook until slightly softened, about 2 minutes; remove from heat. In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice and remaining ingredients; stir into apple mixture. Serve halibut with apple salsa and sprinkle with a little more thyme.

This was a solid recipe. The combination of fish and apples tasted a bit odd to me. I had a heck of a time peeling the hazelnuts, even after roasting and allowing to cool, but that had no impact on my rating. It was good, but didn't wow me into wanting to make again.

This was an excellent and elegant choice for halibut. I had no hazelnut oil so used walnut and also found myself without shallots so leeks worked well although a bit stronger.

This is really yummy and easy to make. I did not have hazelnut oil and used olive oil. I served it with corn on the cob and strawberry spinach salad. This will be one of my staples.
