SPICY ALASKAN HALIBUT CORDON BLUE
1/2 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon granulated white sugar
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
2 cloves minced garlic
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 sheet (12"x18") aluminum foil
4 fresh thick Alaska Halibut steaks or fillets (4 to 6 oz. each)
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
- Heat olive oil, sugar, cayenne pepper and walnuts in small skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir until nuts begin to brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove skillet from heat; stir in garlic and lemon juice. Set aside.
- Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Brush both sides of fish with olive oil and place on baking sheet. Broil 9-10 minutes until fish is nearly opaque throughout.
