Chopped walnuts, herbs, and panko become a crisp, flavorful coating for the halibut fillets.

Ingredients

  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  • ¾ cup finely chopped toasted walnuts
  • ½ cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)*
  • ¼ cup (packed) chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives
  • 6 8-ounce halibut fillets (each about 1 inch thick)
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Lemon wedges

Directions

Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray. Mix walnuts, panko, and all herbs in small bowl; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Brush each fish fillet with 1 tablespoon melted butter; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place fish on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle panko-herb mixture atop fish, dividing equally and pressing to adhere. Roast fish until just opaque in center, about 8 minutes. If crisper topping desired, preheat broiler and broil fish about 1 minute, watching carefully to prevent burning. Transfer fish to plates; garnish with lemon wedges.
