Baked Halibut with Lemon Cream SauceRecipe courtesy of Hass Avocados from Mexico.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 fully ripened avocados
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
3/4 cup heavy cream - divided use
2 large eggs
1/2 cup prepared salsa
1 cup all-purpose flour
Olive oil
6 halibut fillets (6 to 8 ounces each)

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a food processor, combine 2 avocado halves, lemon juice, onion powder and garlic salt; process until chopped. With machine running, slowly add 1/4 cup of the cream; process until smooth. Chill until ready to serve.
  2. In a bowl, whisk the eggs. Add remaining 1/2 cup cream and salsa; whisk until blended. Place flour in another bowl. Lightly coat halibut with flour; coat with egg mixture.
  3. Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C).
  4. Add enough oil to large skillet to cover bottom; heat over medium-high heat. Add half of the fillets; cook, turning once, until browned on both sides. Transfer to large baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining fillets, adding more oil if needed.
  5. Bake until fillets are just cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  6. Cut remaining avocado in thin slices. Place halibut on plates and pipe or spoon sauce around edge; garnish with avocado slices.

Makes 6 servings.
