This is a recipe for pan-seared halibut. Flaky sweet halibut is a perfect platform for this toasted cilantro and lime bread crumb topping. It’s an elegant, easy and incredibly tasty seafood dinner. Let’s take a look at this pan-seared halibut recipe.
Beautiful wild caught Halibut is expensively showcased in our markets right now. I grabbed 3/4 pound and sauteed it into this delicious dinner for two. Served alongside a Rick Bayless inspired Avocado and Mango Salad with toasted pepita dressing topped with crumbled queso fresco, we enjoyed a very special southwestern meal. I’ve included an affiliate link for Rick Bayless for your convenience.
This would work fine with Mahi-Mahi or even Tilapia. But I would recommend the thicker filet of the halibut. Any type of finely ground bread crumbs would do, but I always have a container of Italian bread crumbs in the pantry. Combining the two flavor combinations made for a wonderful crunchy flavor on that fish. For a cleaner flavor, use Panko. This is a very clever pan seared halibut recipe.
