Walnut Crusted Halibut with Honey Soy Sauce

California Walnut Board
  • Yield: 4 servings
  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 10 mins


1 1/2cups California walnuts, toasted
4-- (6-ounce) Alaskan halibut filets
2-- eggs lightly beaten with 1 tablespoon water
1/4cup flour
1tablespoon olive oil, light
1/3cup soy sauce
2cups clover honey
1pinch of salt and pepper


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375F. 
  2. Chop the walnuts.
  3. Stir a pinch of salt and pepper into the flour and reserve in a shallow dish.
  4. Whish together the honey and soy sauce and reserve.
  5. Dip the halibut filets in the flour, coating thoroughly and shaking gently to remove any excess.  Next dip them in the egg wash, draining off any excess, and immediately roll in the walnuts to coat. Reserve for 5 minutes to allow the coating to “set.”
  6. Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan large enough to hold the filets and add the fish. Cook on one side until golden brown, flip carefully and finish in the oven for 5 minutes, or until cooked through.
  7. Arrange on a plate and drizzle with the reserved sauce.
