Halibut Idea

26 Aug

It’s hard to cook halibut in interesting ways, I think.  It is a nice, light white fish, and doesn’t need much, frankly (particularly when it is Alaska fresh).  But, we’re always trying to think of new ways to prepare fish, and this idea is actually not a bad one.

Choose your favorite cracker.  I found a crunchy fig, olive, and almond cracker that is, on balance, savory, but has a hint of sweet, too.  Take a peek!In the food processor, combine crackers with 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil.  Blend (process?) until the crackers are reduced to as fine a crumb as possible.Cook your halibut in a pan, 2-3 minutes per side.  Take it off the heat, top with the cracker crumbs, and place under the broiler on high for another minute or so, until the crumbs are toasted.The almond is lovely with halibut.  The sweet of the fig with the salty olive is also a perfect compliment.  Other crackers would work well, too.  Anything salty, citrus-y, or vegetable-based would be great with halibut.

Delicious!

    Exactly! Halibut doesn’t need much at all, it has such a beautiful flavour it doesn’t need masking. This sounds like a really great idea, sort of a variation on breadcrumbs or something…
