Ingredients

  • 1 pound red potatoes, cut into chunks

  • 5 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ cup hazelnuts

  • ¼ cup seasoned bread crumbs

  • 2 halibut fillets

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 5 tablespoons butter

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable broth

Directions

  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot, and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. While the potatoes are boiling, mash the garlic with 1/2 teaspoon of salt into a smooth paste. Drain potatoes, then mash together with the garlic paste, butter, and pepper. Keep warm.

  2. Preheat an oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C).

  3. While the potatoes are cooking, Preheat an oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C). Pulse the hazelnuts and bread crumbs in a food processor until finely ground, but not ground into a paste. Pour onto a shallow dish. Season the halibut fillets on both sides with 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Gently press one side of the halibut fillets into the nut mixture, and set aside.

  4. Heat the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter in an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Place the halibut fillets nut-side-up into the skillet; cook until the halibut begins to brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn the fillets over, and place into the preheated oven. Bake, nut-side-down until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 5 minutes.

  5. Melt the remaining 5 tablespoons of butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until it turns nut brown. Stir in the vegetable broth, and bring to a simmer.

  6. To serve, mound the potatoes onto the center of each dinner plate. Place a halibut fillet on top of the mashed potatoes nut-side-up, then drizzle with the browned butter sauce.
