Skill Level
4 servings

Our Mellow Curry Savory Seeds make a crunchy crust to jazz up your favorite fish fillet. Serve with roasted veggies—and a side dish of Savory Grains—for a quick, easy dinner any night of the week.



  • 4 pouches Patagonia Provisions Mellow Curry Savory Seeds
  • 4 thick white fish fillets (such as halibut), 4-6 oz each
  • 3 tbsp. neutral high heat oil (such as avocado or grapeseed)
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste

Putting It All Together

  1. Crush Savory Seeds to a fine crumble with a mortar and pestle (or in a bag using a rolling pin). Place in a rimmed dish.
  2. Pat fish fillets dry and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Press one side of the fish into the crushed seeds to form an even top crust.
  4. In medium skillet, heat oil on medium-high heat. Working in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan, carefully place fillets crust-side down. Cook until crust is golden brown, approx. 5 minutes.
  5. Flip fish gently with a spatula, and continue to cook until internal temperature reaches 140°F, approx. 2 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately while hot.
