Here’s a brilliantly easy one, it’s delicious. The broiler is the hidden gem of the kitchen.

Halibut Piccata

1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup dry white wine
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons capers, drained
1 1/2 pounds halibut, steaks or fillets
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated

In a small frying pan coated with cooking spray, stir-fry garlic
over medium-high heat until limp, about 2 minutes. Add wine, lemon
juice and capers. Boil, uncovered, over high heat until reduced
to 1/2 cup, 3 to 4 minutes; keep sauce warm.

Rub fish with oil, sprinkle with pepper and arrange in a single
layer in a 12 by 17 broiler pan. Broil about 3 inches from heat
for 3 minutes. Turn fish over, sprinkle with cheese, and broil
until opaque but still moist looking in center of thickest part
(cut to test), about 3 minutes longer. Transfer to serving platter
or individual plates and pour sauce over fish.

I don’t have the recipe, but ceviche made from halibut or halibut and sea bass is absolutely delicious! I’m sure you can find it online.

Cooked halibut (about 1 pound), cut into 1-inch pieces
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon freshly chopped tarragon leaves or 1 teaspoon dried
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped scallions
2 tablespoons chopped pimento
Dash hot sauce
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 hot dog buns or Kaiser rolls
4 Boston lettuce leaves

In a large bowl, combine halibut, mayonnaise, tarragon, and Dijon. Toss to coat fish. Fold in celery, scallions, pimento, and hot sauce. Season, to taste, with salt and black pepper. Serve on buns with lettuce.
Enjoy!

Halibut is a meaty fish so it needs a solid marinade. My every day fall back is to make fresh pesto (basil, pine nuts, olive oil, garlic, parmasean cheese whirled in a food processor) and slather the halibut with it. Marinate for 10 minutes or over night and either toss on a grill, sear in a pan on the stove or poach in parchment paper in the oven. It’s a reliable fancy dish for friends and family who love meaty fish.
