Author Notes:

If you’re lucky enough to have fresh halibut on hand, this dish is a wonderful change of pace. The salty crunch from the potato chip crust balances beautifully with the delicate taste of halibut. This recipe can also be used as the base for a delicious halibut fish taco. A spritz of fresh lemon juice or even malt vinegar just before serving adds a wonderful brightness to the dish.
