Halibut is a mild-flavored white fish that goes well with a variety of flavors and cooking methods.


Baihain Halibut

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
4 (1-inch thick) halibut steak halves (about 2 pounds)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped green or red bell pepper
1 serrano chili or jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
2 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 medium tomato, diced

Combine 1 tablespoon oil and lime juice in a glass pie plate, add fish and turn to coat.

Heat remaining oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion, peppers and garlic. Cook until onion is translucent and pepper is tender, about 6 minutes.

8 ounces fish stock
1/2 cup diced peeled carrot
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 (6-oz.) halibut steaks
1/2 cup minced peeled red onion

In a wide, low saucepan large enough to hold halibut in one layer, combine beer, fish stock, carrot, celery, bay leaves, peppercorns, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil over high heat and add halibut. Cover, reduce heat to low, and let simmer 1 minute. Remove from heat. To make sauce, remove 1 cup of strained poaching liquid to a small saucepan. Re-cover fish and allow to finish cooking off the heat for 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the steaks. Flesh should be opaque and flake easily with a fork. Meanwhile, place the saucepan over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook, uncovered, until reduced by two thirds and liquid starts to thicken. Add onion.

Grilled Halibut with Sweet Onions & Garlic

1 1/2 pounds halibut, sliced 3/4-inch thick (4 servings)
1 large Vidalia, Maui or other sweet onion
5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon sugar
3 tablespoons orange juice, (fresh is best)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Peel and slice the onion and garlic cloves as thinly as possible. Heat the oil and butter in heavy skillet. When the butter bubbles, add the onions and garlic. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook the onions very slowly for 20 to 25 minutes until they're golden brown. Watch mixture to avoid burning. When the onions are golden, sprinkle with sugar, orange juice, salt and pepper. Allow the juice to evaporate for about 1 minute.
While onions are cooking, heat a grill to medium-high. Brush both sides of the halibut fillets with olive oil. Cook the fish for 2 minutes directly on grill; rotate the fish one-quarter turn without flipping it. (This gives the fish an attractive diamond pattern from the grill.) Cook for 5 minutes longer on the same side. Flip fish and cook for 5 minutes longer. Fish is done when it feels firm to the touch. (Cooking time may vary slightly according to thickness of fillets.) Serve fillet topped with the onion and garlic mixture. Makes 4 servings.

1 1/2 pounds unsalted butter, clarified (see note)
1 cup minced shallots
1 cup raspberry vinegar
1 1/2 quarts prepared crème fraîche, (see note)

To clarify butter, slowly melt it to evaporate most of the water and separate the milk solids (which sink to the bottom of the pan) from the golden liquid on the surface. Pour off the liquid for use in recipes and discard the leftover solids.

To prepare crème fraîche (krem fresh), combine 1 cup whipping cream and 2 tablespoons buttermilk in a glass container. Cover and let stand at room temperature (about 70°F) from 8 to 24 hours, or until very thick. Stir well before covering and refrigerate up to 10 days. Serving Size: 24

Lemon Poached Halibut on Wild Rice

1 pound halibut fillets
Wild or White rice mix
1 cup water
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 chicken-flavor bouillon cubes
1/2 cup green onions, sliced on the diagonal
1/4 teaspoon thyme leaves
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 cup carrots, thinly sliced on the diagonal
Paprika for garnish

Select a favorite flavor of wild, spiced or white rice and prepare the desired number of servings according to the package instructions. Cooked or instant rice will work.
