Recipe: Halibut Milanese for two

This recipe is one that I highly recommend to my clients. It is nutrient-dense, and contains omega-3 fats and high-quality protein. Arugula, endive and tomatoes round out the meal with a nice mix of vitamins and minerals, and it tastes great!



  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 12 ounces Fresh North Atlantic Halibut, no skin
  • 1 egg yolk, slightly beaten
  • ¼ cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of black pepper


1 large beefsteak tomato sliced
2 cups baby arugula
1/2 cup endive, sliced thin
1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
A pinch of salt
A pinch of black pepper
¼ cup shredded parmesan cheese
Lemon wedges, optional


1.Preheat a non-stick skillet while you combine breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese in a bowl.
2.Season both sides of the halibut with salt & pepper.
3.Brush the top half with the beaten egg yolk. Lay the top half in the bread crumb and cheese mixture and press down.
4.Add the olive oil to your heated pan and place the top half of the halibut into the pan.
5.Sear for 20 seconds. You will see the breading on the outer edge of the halibut start to brown.
6.Flip the fish, turn the heat down to medium and allow it to cook 5–7 minutes.
7.Fan the slices of tomato on two plates.
8.Combine arugula, endive, vinegar, olive oil, salt & pepper. Lightly toss, and place in the middle of your tomato slices. Top with shredded parmesan cheese.
9.Divide the fish and place a piece on top of each salad. Lemon wedges optional.
