Parmesan Crusted Halibut - Paleo, Keto, Bulletproof

This Parmesan Crusted Halibut is not only amazingly delicious and good for you, but it's also easy to make and cooks in about 15-20 minutes! Wild-caught halibut is a mild-tasting lean fish with lots of protein, zero carbs and it's a good source for heart-healthy Omega 3 fatty acids. It's the perfect vessel for this rich and flavorful preparation.

This dish is Paleo if you tolerate cheese and if you don't, I've got a modification for you below. Bonus - the modification also makes it Bulletproof Diet friendly.

Here's how you make it:

Parmesan Crusted Halibut - Paleo, Keto, Bulletproof
Serves 4
Oven 350 degrees F
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15-20 minutes

1 Tablespoon + 4 pats grass-fed butter to finish - optional (I use Kerrygold)
4 6-ounce pieces wild-caught halibut
Himalayan pink salt or sea salt
3 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning, divided
1/4 cup Bulletproof Mayo (watch how-to-make video), Primal Kitchen Mayo, or your favorite
4 teaspoons almond meal or almond flour (I use Bob's Red Mill)
4 teaspoons grated Parmigiano Reggiano (omit to make Bulletproof or if you don't tolerate cheese)
1/4 cup shredded Asiago cheese (omit to make Bulletproof or if you don't tolerate cheese)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Butter a large baking dish with 1 Tablespoon of the butter.

Lay the 4 pieces of halibut evenly spaced across the bottom of the dish.

Sprinkle each filet with a light dusting of Himalayan pink salt or sea salt.

Sprinkle half of the dried Italian seasoning evenly across each filet, reserve the other half.

Spread the mayo evenly across each filet.

Sprinkle each filet with 1 teaspoon of the almond meal or almond flour.

If omitting the cheese, sprinkle each filet evenly with the remaining dried Italian seasoning. Otherwise, continue by evenly coating each filet with the Parmigiano Reggiano and Asiago cheeses, then top with remaining dried Italian seasoning.

Place the dish in the oven uncovered and cook for approximately 15-20 minutes or until the fish is opaque white in the middle and the top is lightly browned. If using cheese, you may wish to place under the broiler for about 1 minute to get a nice crispy crust.

Remove from oven and serve with a pat of grass-fed butter atop each (optional).

Serving Suggestion: I like to plate my fish atop a bed of greens (like the baby arugula pictured) and drizzle everything with a little Bulletproof Brain Octane (or you can use MCT Oil or unflavored coconut oil) and additional sea salt. The heat from the fish lightly wilts the greens and the addition of healthy oils are satiating and good for keeping my brain and body fit and performing optimally.


Nuts About Nuts - Nut Butter Recipes and Nutrition

Check out this cool infographic with awesome nut butter recipes you can make at home - which is way more cost effective.  It also includes the health benefits and nutrition information for each variety.  My recommendation would be to not use industrial seed oils such as canola due to their inflammation-causing properties, but rather replace it with coconut oil, MCT oil or better yet - Bulletproof XCT Oil, a higher concentrated form of MCT oil.  Personally, I also avoid peanuts and peanut butter since they are mostly sourced from GMO crops, generally contain high amounts of aflatoxins (mold) and lectins (anti-nutrient).

My favorite nut butter is almond butter made with XCT oil (or use MCT or coconut oil).  What's yours?
