Crispy Halibut

This is our favorite way to eat halibut. My mother, who does not like fish at all, is always happy to come to Sunday Dinner when I serve crispy halibut. This is so simple I can hardly call it a recipe--but I had to share it! We have over 50 pounds of halibut in the freezer so this dish will appear often.
Serve it with Homemade Tarter Sauce and a lemon wedge. It is simply delicious.

Crispy Halibut
1 pound halibut--sliced 1/2 inch thick
1/2 cup Panko crumbs
1/2 cup cornmeal
salt and pepper
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons water
vegetable oil
Mix together panko crumbs, cornmeal, salt and pepper. Put in a shallow dish. Mix together egg and water, put in a shallow dish. Dip halibut slices into egg mixture then into Panko mixture. Heat about 1/4 inch oil in a large skillet to 350 degrees. Gently place breaded halibut into hot oil. Cook about 2 minutes on each side. Put cooked halibut on a plate lined with paper towels. Serve with lemon juice and tarter sauce.

Tartar Sauce

I don't often devote an entire blog post to a sauce--but this is just too delicious not to share. It makes up in a minute with ingredients found in your fridge. We have a freezer full of halibut--I can't imagine eating halibut without this yummy sauce.

Tartar Sauce
1 cup mayonnaise (for a lighter version use 2/3 cup mayo and 1/3 cup plain Greek Yogurt)
1/4 cup chopped dill pickles, I like Famous Dave's Spicy Pickle Chips
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon finely diced onion
1 tablespoon diced pimento (if desired)
Mix together and refrigerate. Delicious on halibut, fish tacos, fish sticks.
