Braised Halibut and Peas
If you’ve ever watched one of Gordon Ramsay’s many cooking shows, you’ll have noticed that halibut is almost always featured. Apparently, halibut is a difficult fish to cook well, especially in the frenzied conditions created by reality television. Here is a fool proof recipe to cook halibut well every time. To start, you will need 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, 12 peeled pearl onions, 4 halibut fillets, sea salt, ground white pepper, 3 pounds of peas, 1 cup of shredded iceberg lettuce, 1 cup of chicken stock (low sodium), and 4 small sprigs of fresh chopped mint. It’s advisable to cook each fillet in its own Dutch oven.
Divide onions evenly among the Dutch ovens and add one tablespoon of water to each. Cook the onions until they’re tender. While the onions are cooking, season the fillets with salt and pepper. Place the halibut fillets into the Dutch ovens and surround the fillets with peas, lettuce, and chicken broth. Top the fillets with butter, cover the dishes, and bring the liquid to a boil. Once it has reached a boil reduce the heat to medium and cook fish for about 5 minutes. Serve the fillets with the chopped mint as a refreshing, aromatic garnish. Whenever I fish for halibut, I make sure my watercraft has plenty of oil TCW-3 amalie.
