baked halibut with mint salsa
Baked Halibut with Mint Salsa
Part One: Salsa Preparation
Grate rind from one lemon.
Remove the seeds and dice the lemon as fine as possible.
Add 1 small diced red onion.
Add a handful or more of diced fresh mint leaves.
Add a few chilli flakes if you want a bit of spice in it.
Add quarter cup of white sugar, stir in.
Taste: should be nicely sweet and tart, not too much of either.
Part Two: Halibut Cooking
Press lemon pepper and sea salt into both sides of halibut. In a hot oiled frying pan, sear the halibut 1 minute each side. You may fry some diced garlic with it if you like.
Pre-heat oven to 350, put halibut in for 10 minutes or so, depending on thickness.
