Wild Rice Crusted Halibut
  • Cooking Time: 35 minutes
  • Servings: 4
  • Preparation Time: 30 minutes
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup wild rice
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 (5–6-ounce) skinless halibut, hake, or cod fillets
  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
  • Lemon wedges (for serving)
  1. Step 1: Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a medium skillet over medium-high. Add rice and cook, tossing occasionally, until grains have popped open like popcorn and are lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Pulse in a food processor or blender to a fine powder.
  2. Step 2: Preheat oven to 350°F. Place flour in a shallow bowl. Beat eggs and 1 tablespoon water in another shallow bowl. Place wild rice powder in a baking dish. Season fish with salt and pepper. Working with 1 fillet at a time, dredge in flour, shaking off excess, then dip into egg mixture, turning to coat evenly. Coat with rice powder.
  3. Step 3: Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high. Cook fish until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer skillet to oven and roast fish until just opaque for 3 minutes. Finally! Serve with lemon wedges.
