Easy Wild Halibut

            METHOD

           INGREDIENTS

BROILED HALIBUT FILLETS

Halibut is a lean fish with mild, sweet-tasting white flesh, large flakes and a firm but tender texture. Due to its ultra-low fat content, this fish becomes dried-out if overcooked.

Ideally, go for an internal temp of about 125º 130º F.  This leaves the fish tender and moist.  Because it hold together very nicely, there are several ways to cook this fabulous fish.  Family faves are grilled, sautéed or battered-and-fried halibut and chips! Not only does it taste spectacular, but it's extremely good for you, boasting a high ratio of protein to fat. Furthermore, the miniscule amount of fat that exists in a fillet is Omega-3, a good form of fat that helps lower your risk of heart disease and promotes overall wellness.

This chef-inspired recipe not only allows this sumptuous fish to shine through, it's quick and easy prep makes it ideal for a healthy after work dinner for two!

 

2 halibut fillets

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley (or other herb of your choice) or 2 tablespoons finely chopped tarragon (or other herb of your choice) or 2 tablespoons finely chopped dill (or other herb of your choice)

salt and pepper, to taste

1 teaspoon olive oil

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Make little aluminum foil trays sized to fit each fillet.

Wipe the bottom of each tray with olive oil.

Put the fillets ugly side up (skin side even if the skin is now removed) on the trays.

Mix the butter with the chopped herbs throughly.

Place 1 tablespoon of the butter on the halibut.

Broil for 4 minutes.

Carefully turn each fillet over, not spilling any of the melted herb butter.
