  1. Thinly slice all the veggies for the slaw and place in a large bowl.
  2. In a small blender, blend together all the ingredients for the “peanut” sauce. Once smooth, pour over veggies and use tongs to toss until completely covered in sauce. Set aside.
  3. In medium to large sauté pan over medium heat, add the ingredients for the coconut aminos sauce and whisk to combined. Bring to a low boil and let reduce by almost half until thick and coats the back of a spoon.
  4. While the coconut amino sauce reduces, place a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add ghee. Once hot, top halibut filets with garlic powder and salt. Place flesh side down in pan and cook for about 5 minutes before flipping and cooking 5 more minutes on skin side.
  5. Once halibut is flaky, remove from heat, place on top of slaw, then top the filet with a spoonful of the coconut amino sauce. And top with a little extra cilantro and sliced almonds!
