  • 1 onion, cut into wedges.

  • 1 tablespoon thyme

INSTRUCTIONS Make the mushroom powder. Place dried mushrooms and nori ( torn up) into a food processor or spice grinder and pulse until a fine powder. Pulse in the remaining salt, pepper, thyme, and chili flakes. Place in a small jar or bowl and set aside.

Egg batter. Whisk the egg with mustard and soy sauce in a small bowl.

Sauteed mushrooms. Saute the mushrooms in a skillet over medium heat with a little olive oil, until they release their moisture, cook this off until the mushrooms caramelize a bit. See our sauteed mushroom recipe for more details. Season with salt and pepper and thyme. Set aside.

Mix 2 teaspoons truffle oil and two teaspoons vinegar in a tiny bowl with a pinch of salt, set aside.

Halibut. Cut fish into 4 equal pieces. Dip in the egg batter, then coat each side generously with the mushroom powder. Heat a skillet with butter and oil over medium-high heat. Carefully sear the halibut, a few minutes on each side or until beautifully golden, lower heat to cook through to the desired doneness. Timing will depend on the thickness of the fish.

To serve, place the fish over a starch of your choice, then top the fish with the sauteed mushrooms. Drizzle the plate with a teaspoon of the vinaigrette. Enjoy!
