Bon Appetite!

Pan fried Halibut, gluten free!

Written By: Chris - Sep• 15•14

I’ve been looking for more and more gluten free products as Bill and I seem to feel better overall when we cut it out of our diets.  My friend Lisa introduced me to the “Schar Gluten-Free Wheat-Free Bread Crumbs”, which is both gluten and wheat-free during an event we hosted together.  These bread crumbs work pretty good in a number of dishes I’ve made and I think this pan fried version of fish turned out crispy and delicious!  (I’ve since found another brand “glutino”, which have more of the Panko crumb feel and are also really good!)

Ingredients:

2 pounds fish fillets, I used Halibut
1/2 Cups Parmesan Cheese, grated
1 Cup Bread Crumbs
1 Tablespoon Butter, melted
1/4 Cup Fresh Parsley, chopped fine
1 Egg, lightly beaten
2-3 Tablespoons Half & Half
Salt & Pepper, to taste
1/3 Cup Sunflower Oil, for frying
2 Tablespoons Lemon Olive Oil
Lemon wedges

In a shallow bowl, combine the egg and cream and set aside.

In another bowl, melt butter and combine the crumbs, cheese and chopped parsley.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil.  Remove skin from fish and season with salt & Pepper.

Dip fillets in egg bath and then coat with the crumb mixture.

Fry fish, a few fillets at a time, for three to five minutes on each side or until golden brown and fish flakes easily with a fork.  Drain on paper towels.

Meanwhile, I blanched some green beans and did a quick saute with butter, soy sauce, sesame oil and sesame seeds for a side dish.  I also made a side zucchini salad and simple mashed potatoes.

Serve the fish with a garnish with lemon and parsley if desired.  The fish will be flaky on the inside and crispy on the outside.

This meal paired perfectly with the 2006 Pine Ridge Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon Bill pulled from the cellar!
