Alaskan Halibut: 5 Ways to Dress Up Freshly Grilled Fillets
Known to grow more than 8 feet long, fresh Alaskan halibut is huge when it comes to texture, flavor and nutrition too. Considered to be a lean, low fat, low sodium fish, it is rich in magnesium and potassium. The texture is firm but flaky and the meat tastes phenomenally sweet. With that said, here are five ways to dress up a few grilled fillets for dinner tonight:
Green Chili & Cilantro
Do you want to entice your family to the table with a bit of Latin American flair? If so, dress up our Alaskan halibut fillets with a green chili topping. It’s traditionally made with ½ of a freshly squeezed lime, 4 ounces of diced chilies, 2 teaspoons of smoked paprika, 1 tablespoon of cilantro and ½ cup of dense, plain yogurt.
Lemon & Thyme
If you prefer a bright, clean, herbaceous dressing for your Alaskan halibut fillets, try whipping up a mixture of lemon and thyme instead. Many Alaskan seafood chefs make one by combining ½ teaspoon of thyme, ½ teaspoon of lemon zest, ½ of a freshly squeezed lemon, 3 tablespoons of salted butter and 2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard together.
A Taste of Caprese
Our Alaskan halibut fillets also taste fabulous topped with fresh basil, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, mozzarella and tomato slices too. Place the sliced cheese, tomato and basil onto the fillets first. Then combine the oil and vinegar together. Later, drizzle it over top of the Alaskan halibut fillets right before bringing the dish to your family’s table.
Would you rather have feta cheese instead of mozzarella? Well then, combine black olives, red onions, green peppers, cherry tomatoes and feta cheese into a bowl. Coat them with Italian or ranch dressing. Then spoon the mixture over top of the Alaskan halibut fillets. For a bit of extra color and flavor, toss on some oregano and basil too.
Lastly, you may want to dress up your Alaskan halibut fillets with an Italian twist. To do so, combine artichoke hearts, Parmesan Reggiano cheese, mushrooms, black olives and tomato sauce together. Afterward, ladle a respectable amount of the Italy inspired sauce over top of the fish and enjoy.
