  • 2 halibut fillets skin removed (about 1 pound)
  • 4 teaspoons stone-ground mustard deli-style
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut chips or shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons black sesame seeds
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Spread both sides of each halibut fillet with mustard (1 teaspoon per side). Cut the fillets in half (making four pieces total).
  2. In a shallow bowl, mix together coconut and sesame seeds. Coat both sides of each halibut fillet with the coconut mixture. Season with pepper.
  3. In a skillet large enough to hold all four fillets, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add halibut and cook for approximately 4 minutes, then turn and cook another 3 minutes or so. The fish should be golden-colored and opaque all the way through.
  4. Serve immediately.
