Serves 4

Spice Mixture:
1 Tablespoon whole coriander seeds
1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/2 stick cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon brown mustard seeds
1 teaspoon green cardamom pods
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 small dried hot red pepper
1 teaspoon whole green peppercorns
1 Tablespoon whole black peppercorns
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon minced lemon peel
1 Tablespoon cracked black pepper

Halibut steak for four people (2-3 pounds)
1 Tablespoon butte
2 Tablespoons olive oil

Greens or parsley for garnish; lemon wedges

Using the spice grinder, grind and blend the first eleven ingredients.  Add the Tablespoon of cracked black pepper, stirring into the rest of the spices.  Pat spice mixture thickly onto both sides of halibut steak, then sauté halibut in melted butter and olive oil.  Spicy coating will become crusty; cook approximately 3-4 minutes on each side being careful not to overcook.
