Horseradish Crusted Halibut or Tilapia - Lee Ann Nielsen

10 tablespoon Freshly grated or prepared horseradish

1/2 cup Fresh white bread crumbs

2 teaspoon Unsalted butter

1 teaspoon Chervil leaves

1 teaspoon Tarragon leaves

1 pinch Freshly ground pepper2

teaspoon Egg white

4 Halibut or Tilapia or other firm white fillets

1. Heat oven to 400. In a food processor, combine horseradish, bread crumbs, butter, herbs and pepper. Pulse 2 or 3 times until combined and herbs are coarsely chopped. Add egg white and pulse 2 or 3 three times. 2. Season both sides of fish with salt and pepper. Pat 3 or 4 tablespoons of the mixture firmly onto one side of each fillet. Heat a large nonstick, ovenproof pan over medium-low heat. Add oil and fillets, crust side down. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or crust is golden brown. Carefully turn, then place pan in oven for 7 to 10 minutes, or until done to taste. I have altered this recipe, I use unsalted butter, egg whites, croutons pulverised in the food processor, and horseradish. It taste like a restaurant entree.
