    Oat Crusted Halibut.

    Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, many are looking to lighten up their diets. White fish is high in protein, low in calories, and one of the first foods my son with acid reflux disease could tolerate. A dear friend recently brought me Halibut from Alaska that I used in this recipe, but you can also find high quality white fish in the frozen food section of your grocery.

    4 Pieces of white fish

    2 Tbs. canola oil

    1 cup oat flour

    1 Tbs. salt

    1/2 Tbs. pepper

    Sprinkle of Old Bay or paprika for color (if tolerated)



    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Preheat the canola oil in a skillet to medium heat on the stovetop. In a shallow baking dish, mix the oat flour, salt, pepper and Old Bay seasoning. Spread the mixture across the dish. Using a paper towel, pat-dry any moisture from the fish fillets (especially if it was previously frozen). Lightly place each fillet in the dry mixture on both sides, and shake off any excess. Place the fillets in the hot oil for about 1 minute or less (just enough to brown the fillets on the outside, but not to make them greasy). Remove the fish from the stovetop and finish cooking it in the skillet in the oven for about 10 more minutes (the time will depend on the thickness of the fillets, but the goal is to remove the fish when it is just becoming translucent in the middle). Enjoy!
