Halibut has been available with the opening of the season recently . Here's a meal that tastes fantastic, is really good for you, and tastes excellent with halibut or if you cook cod this way. The following dinner takes about 30 minutes from start to finish.
What You Need for 2 People (I’ve made this for up to 10 people)
For the Fish
2 halibut fillets
dash of paprika
tbsp olive oil
For the Veggies
1/4 of a medium onion, diced
1/4 of a red bell pepper, diced
1-inch of Dikon Radish, diced
3-4 Kale leaves – chopped and steamed
1.5-cups cooked brown rice (any kind of brown rice – basmati is great if you can find it)
1 small zucchini – sliced and quartered
4 crimini mushrooms – sliced
tbsp olive oil
tbsp Greek Seasoning
Fillet and skin the fish, pat dry and set aside. Combine all the Veggie ingredients except the rice into a pan and start sauteing at a fairly low heat. Steam the kale for about 3-minutes* in a microwave, and then add it to the saute. Sprinkle the whole thing liberally with the Greek Seasoning.
Place the Fish ingredients, garlic – butter – olive oil, in a pan on low heat – much like the veggie saute. sprinkle the paprika over the fish (you can spice this up with cajun or a number of other things too).
When the you turn the fish over, add the rice to the saute. Cook it all until the fish is done. I serve this with a cucumber salad. I’ll leave the recipe for that up to you, but you can check out my Polish Cucumber Salad Dressing Recipe.
*You know your microwave. If you're not sure, then steam the kale on the stove using a steamer until tender.
