Just for the Halibut - Anders' favourite Halibut recipe

Best Halibut Recipe

Halibut Dinner
Halibut Dinner

Halibut is one of the best fish you can eat. It is easy to prepare. You can serve halibut with rice, potatoes or just some veggies like asparagus.

First go down to your local fish market and get a good slab of fish. It is really a no brainier to make a great meal with fish, just don't overcook.

This recipe is so easy and when you add my super easy to make Creamy Wine sauce with it, well... your in heaven.


The ingredients are as follows:
  • 1 Kg or 2.2 lbs of fresh Halibut (give or take depending on how many you feed, around 400 grams per person)
  • One fresh leak, finely chopped.
  • Soft butter
  • Juice of one lime or lemon, but lime seems to be better.
  • salt
  • Pepper

Place the halibut in an oven proof dish. Brush with lime juice on top of the fillets and let sit for 10 minutes. This starts a process of curing the meat and you will see that the fillet actually turns whiter than it was.

After the 10 minutes are up, spread a layer of butter on top (just like you would butter bread), sprinkle with salt and pepper then add a thick layer of the chopped leak on top.


Bake uncovered at 400F for around 12-15 minutes, It should be flaky when forked.



Try not to over cook. A good rule of thumb is to bake 10-12 minutes per inch of fish (more if you have a big piece).

Remove from oven when cooked and let sit for 3-5 minutes. Remember it will continue to cook somewhat as it sits.

Don't forget my Creamy Wine Sauce, it is out of this world.


Wine Pairing and Recommendations:


The wine I love with this meal is actually a Riesling. The Riesling sometime can be a bit on the sweet side but try a Cave Spring (Off Dry) Riesling, from Cave Spring Cellars in Jordan, Ontario Canada. It is fantastic.

Kiss the Cook,

Anders
