Cove Halibut - ala Southwest!
pieces of halibut filets approximately 3/4-1"
thick (enough for four average servings)
filets at 500 degrees
for about 7 minutes - or less (it will depend
on thickness and temperature of the halibut when
it went in) until barely opaque. Or, you may choose
to broil them in your oven - just make sure
you turn the pieces over about half-way through
fruit salsa adds a refreshing piquancy - and makes
for very easy company dinner as you can make the
salsa early in the day and then do the halibut
at the last minute.
mangoes, nectarines or papaya, depending on size
- enough to make 2-2 1/2 cups diced.
Juice of one lime 9about 2-3 Tbss)
1 Tbs finely chopped cilantro
a few flakes of red pepper, to taste
fruit. Dice these into pretty small pieces. Take
one half of the fruit and mash it slightly - just
so that the fruit seems to "tie together."
Add lime, cilantro and red pepper flakes. Serve
this at room temperature over the broiled or baked
dish is nice with fresh green beans, sugar snap
peas, or pea pods and oven roasted small potatoes.
