Recipe Ingredients for pistachio-crusted halibut

24 oz halibut fillet (4 fillets 1 1/4-inch-thick, skinned)
1/3 cup pistachios, shelled (preferably Turkish), finely chopped
3 tablespoons cornmeal
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Recipe Directions for pistachio-crusted halibut

  1. Put fish in a shallow baking dish, pour 1 cup whole milk over it, and chill, covered, turning over once, 30 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, stir together pistachios and cornmeal in a shallow bowl.

  3. Remove fish from milk, letting excess drip off. Transfer to a plate and sprinkle all over with salt and pepper, then dredge lightly in cornmeal-pistachio mixture. Transfer to a clean plate as coated.

  4. Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then sauté fish, turning over once, until golden and just cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes total.

  5. While fish cooks, stir together all ingredients for spicy yogurt.

  6. Serve fish with spicy yogurt sauce on the side.
