Light and flakey pan-fried fish topped with lemony garlic almonds is the perfect quick and easy summer dinner when served alongside a fresh green salad.

Halibut Almondine 


  • 2 – 4 pieces of wild-caught halibut
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds
  • 2 Tbsp avocado or grapeseed oil
  • 2 small garlic cloves, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 lemon, zested and cut into wedges


  1. Using paper towels, blot fillets dry and season generously on both sides with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  2. Meanwhile, in a hot pan, toast almond slivers until slightly browned. Set aside nuts, and return pan to stove over medium low heat.
  3. Drizzle in oil of choice and add in chopped garlic. Place fillets in a single layer in the pan and cook (without moving them around too much) for 4 minutes. Carefully flip over and continue cooking for an additional 3-4 minutes, or until fish is cooked through.
  4. While fish is cooking, mix the toasted almonds, reserved chopped garlic, and lemon zest.
