  • 2 filets of Halibut about 3/4-1 inch thick
  • 3/4 cup Santé Nuts Candied Pistachios
  • 1/2-1 cup pancake mix already mixed with water so it is a wet batter
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1-2 Tbs oil for searing


  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 Tbs parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 Tbs cream

Sauteed Greens

  • 2 large leaves Swiss Chard cut into strips, center removed
  • 1 Tbs Olive oil optional, there may be enough oil left from searing your fish
  • 1/2 Tbs minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup crushed Sante Candied Pistachios divided


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Pat your halibut filet dry, season with a little salt and pepper, then dip one side in a prepared pancake batter
  • Use a blender, food processor, or nut chopper to chop Santé Nuts Candied Pistachios into small pieces (but not to a flour/dust)
  • Put nuts on a plate or cutting board, and press the pancake batter dipped side of the fish into the nuts so they stick
  • Heat a sautee pan with oil until the oil is hot, but not smoking
  • Put fish, nut side down into hot pan and let sear for 3-4 minutes (do not move it, you want a nice crust to form)
  • Remove from saute pan, and put on baking sheet, finish fish in the oven by baking at 350 for 8-10 minutes
  • While fish is cooking in oven, saute your greens in the oil with the minced garlic, and after about 2 minutes sprinkle in pistachios. Then put on plate.
  • Mix togehter the sauce ingredients in a bowl or plastic bag, if in a bag, cut the tip after mixing to make it easy to pipe over your fish.
  • Remove fish from oven, serve over greens with sauce on top!
  • Enjoy
