  • 2 halibut fillets (skin removed)
  • 4 teaspoons stone-ground mustard
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut chips (or shredded coconut)
  • 2 tablespoons black sesame seeds
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Coat both sides of each halibut fillet with mustard, about 1 teaspoon per side.
  • Cut the fillets in half so you have 4 pieces of halibut.
  • In a shallow bowl, mix together the coconut and sesame seeds.
  • Coat both sides of each halibut fillet with the coconut mixture, then season with pepper to taste.
  • In a skillet large enough to hold all four fillets, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the halibut fillets. Cook for about 4 minutes, then flip and cook the other side for another 3 minutes or so. The fish should be golden on the outside and opaque all the way through.


This recipe is for 4 servings. Each serving will be 1 piece of halibut.
Your halibut will be best-served right away. 
If you have leftovers, they can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator and should be eaten within a day or two.
