Mediterranean Nut Encrusted Pan Seared Fish with Hemp Seeds
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Hemp seeds are once again in fashion! They add even more protein to this fish dish, along with an attractive garnished effect. Great with tuna, etc.
fillets or steaks of salmon, sea bass, or other fresh fish in season
Brush the fish with oil and gently pat on the ground nuts. Season with cilantro, green onions, salt, pepper, snipped herbs and paprika. Heat a heavy bottomed fry pan or griddle and add just a drizzle of oil. Pan grill the fish until fish flakes easily, do not over-cook, adding a bit more oil if necessary. This usually takes about 2-3 minutes on each side, but depends upon the thickness of the steak, of course. Do not let it cook on too high of heat, just so that it is gently sizzling. It is done when it flakes easily when you twist a fork into the flesh. Arrange on plate. In hot pan add the sherry and heat just 20-30 seconds, stirring to make a drizzling sauce. Pour over the fish. Sprinkle with the hemp seeds and serve.
