The Kaufmann’s sharing in the fun

We hope you enjoyed last week’s recipe. This week we are switching it up to one of Heather’s favorite dinner recipes, and submissions to her nutrition class. GRIND HERE

Macadamia Nut Crusted Halibut with Apricot Glaze

 2 4-6 ounce pieces of wild caught Halibut

1/3 cup macadamia nuts, unsalted if possible

2 Tbsp almond meal

1 Tbsp coconut flour

2 tsp white sesame seeds

1/2 tsp ginger powder

1/4 tsp mustard powder

1/4 tsp Celtic salt

Dash of pepper

1/3 cup almond milk

1/3 cup apricot fruit spread (look for something that is all fruit, no sugar added)

1/4 cup water

1 Tbsp sesame oil

2 Tbsp coconut aminos

1-2 tsp fresh grated ginger

1/2 tsp Dijon mustard

1/2 tsp minced garlic (1 clove through a press)

 Combine the nuts, almond meal, sesame seeds, ginger powder, mustard powder, Celtic salt and pepper in a small food processor. Grind until nuts are a fine meal.  Place almond milk in a shallow dish. Put nut powder in another shallow dish. First coat each piece of fish with the milk then cover with the nut mixture. Press the mixture gently into the flesh. Heat a skillet with 1 teaspoon sesame oil or coconut oil. Gently place the fish into the pan. Cook for about 6 or 7 minutes each side. Turn the fish carefully as not to cause the coating to fall off. When the fish is done it should be slightly firm (not mushy) to the touch.  While the fish is cooking, put the apricot spread and water in a small sauce pan and heat over med/low heat. Add the sesame oil, coconut aminos, grated ginger, mustard and garlic. Allow mixture to simmer and flavors to combine. Taste and adjust flavors according to preference. Plate fish and drizzle with apricot glaze. Serve with cooked greens or over cauliflower puree.

Serves 2

    I made it tonight but didn’t have almond milk so i rolled the halibut in coconut flour, dipped it in egg and then in the nut mixture, and skipped the apricot drizzle – just because I’m lazy. It was awesome, thank you!
