Sun-dried Tomato Crusted Halibut
This Whole30 Halibut is one of my absolute favourite fish recipes. Halibut (or cod) is coated in a crust of sun-dried tomatoes, basil, chilies and almond flour and hen quickly baked in the oven. This dish is truly a show stopper and is incredibly quick to prepare! This Halibut is are Whole30, Paleo, Dairy Free, Grain Free, Gluten Free, and Specific Carbohydrate Diet Legal.
Truthfully white fish is something that I really struggle to cook. My go to way to cook it is with slices of lemon, garlic and a few fresh herbs, with although simple, is quite boring.
Enter this Sun-dried Tomato Crusted Halibut, not only is it quick and easy to make (under 20 minutes!) it’s also absolutely packed with flavour.
The coating for the Whole30 Halibut is made in just minutes by tossing sun-dried tomatoes, basil, chili and garlic in a food processor and blending into a thick paste. You then add in lemon, balsamic and almond flour to give the coating a crumbly texture.
I think you are really going to love the flavours in this dish. The coating can be made up to 3 days in advance and can really be used on anything from white fish to chicken or steak.
I like using halibut for this recipe but cod, flounder, turbot or even seabass would also work well.
This fish is fantastic on its own, but if you are looking for a condiment to serve alongside, this tartar sauce works really well with it.

I feel like it is fate that you posted this recipe, as wild caught halibut is on sale at my grocery store!
One question… can you substitute anything for the Almond Flour? I cannot eat anything Almond so was hoping there is something else I can use? Thanks so much and can’t wait to try this!
Absolutely fantastic! Made this for dinner with roasted Brussels sprouts. It’s definitely a keeper and one I will be making again and again.
This recipe is so easy to make and is so flavourful. I made this for 10 friends on a ski trip and it was a hit. I couldn’t recommend it more. Can’t wait to make it again!
Should I use oil packed sun-dried tomatoes or one in bag?
I would recommend using oil packed because they are easier to chop
