My husband and I caught a beautiful halibut off of the coast of Malibu on Sunday (about 18lbs-scale battery was dead). We've made plenty of fabulous beer battered halibut and chips whenever we pick up a flatty, but we'd like to explore other ways to enjoy halibut, as well.
We've had halibut picatta and halibut with sambal vinaigrette and wasabi cream, both excellent. Last night, we tried roasted halibut with onion sauce and I added whipped potatos on top of the onions while baking. While it was good, it didn't wow me. I make fish tacos that'll send you to straight to heaven although I've never had halibut meat around when I've made them (rockfish, calico). Perhaps, I need to try them with halibut.
Do you have a halibut recipe that'll knock our socks off? I'm great with salmon, rockfish and bass, but halibut is a little trickier for me. The fish doesn't have much flavor on it's own, the filets are thicker, and have a meatier texture than what I'm used to working with. Basically, I'm not comfortable with halibut in forms other than battered and deep fried and could use a little guidance.
