Spiced Halibut

  • Author: by Mary
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2-4 1x


Units Scale
  • oil for frying (I use olive, but canola would work)
  • 1 lb fresh halibut fillets, cut into single-serving sizes
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin


  1. Heat 1 cm of oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200 F.
  3. Rinse your fish and pat it dry. Cut into the size you want.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and all of the spices.
  5. Dredge the fish in the dry mixture, coating all sides.
  6. Fry the fish, turning once. Fry time will vary drastically depending on the thickness of your fish. For mine, I cook about 2-3 minutes on each side at a fairly high heat. You want the fish to be opaque all the way through.
  7. Remove the fish from the pan and set in the oven on a paper towel-lined baking sheet until you are done frying all of the fish.
