Halibut and Sweet Corn Tamales

These wonderful and simple oven 'tamales' go very well with another recipe I am posting for Mango, Jicama, and Corn Salad. In my opinion, you can't go wrong with halibut or Southwestern cooking!

  • Season with fresh ground black pepper.
  • Stir in fintely chopped red bell pepper.
  • Arrange 2 corn husks on a square of foil large enough to hold a tamale.
  • Spread 1/4 of corn mixture (approx the same size as the halibut fillets you are using) over both husks on foil.
  • Season halibut on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Place halibuts on top of corn mixtures on tamales.
  • Top halibuts with another 1/4 of the corn mixture.
  • Pull ends of bottom husks over halibuts and top with remaining husks.
  • Tuck ends of top husks under bottom husks.
  • Fold around tamales into small packets.
  • Bake until halibuts are just cooked through, about 20 minutes.
