Lime Crusted Fish with Olive Sauce (Recipe)

Lime crusted Halibut or Cod Recipe

This delicious Whole30 recipe is sumptuous to eat. Plus, it is easy and quick to make!

I served it with air-fried, garlicky asparagus and white acorn squash mash.

If you are not trying to be grain-free, you can try it with a different kind of flour.

You can use any firm white fish. Here I used halibut, but cod is good too.

Lime Crusted Fish with Olive Sauce Recipe

1 large clove garlic, minced
juice of 2 small limes (4 tbsp)
2 tbsp pitted black olives, chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
pinch sea salt

2 tbsp tapioca or cassava flour
1 tsp garlic powder
zest of 2 small limes
small pinch sea salt
2 skinless filets of firm white fish
1 tbsp avocado oil

Zest the limes first and then juice them.

Stir together the vinaigrette ingredients in a medium bowl.

Mix together the flour, garlic powder, lime zest and salt together on a large plate.

Press the fish filets into the flour/lime mixture, coating well on both sides.

Heat the avocado oil in a large frying pan.

Add the fish, flesh side down, and fry 3 minutes or until golden brown. Then turn them over and pour vinaigrette around.

Cook for 2 minutes, until the fish is just cooked.

Serve immediately.
