Adapted this from a recipe in "Cuisine at Home". The original included shrimp in the sauce, and served on a bed of sauteed collard greens. It was excellent, but I needed something simpler for everyday dining.
- 2 halibut fillets or 2 halibut steaks, seasoned with
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 garlic cloves, sliced
- 1⁄4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 bay leaf
- 2 tablespoons dry sherry
- 1 lemon, juice of
- 3 tablespoons parsley, chopped
- Sear seasoned halibut on both sides in 1 T. oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook just until done, remove to serving plates and keep warm.
- Add 2 T. oil, garlic, pepper flakes, and bay leaf to skillet; saute just until garlic begins to turn golden and fragrant.
- Deglaze with sherry and lemon juice, simmer briefly to reduce a bit, and finish with parsley.
- Spoon sauce over halibut and serve.
Excellent recipe - I had a lovely filet of fresh halibut, seared one side flipped it poured in the remaining ingredients, covered it with a lid for apprx 8 minutes - it came out flakey, moist and delicious.I put the parsley in with it while it was cooking. It would look nicer sprinkled on top as a garnish (as you suggested) Thanks for posting this recipe Dianegrapegrower
