Cooking Halibut

5 posts in this topic

I brought home 2lbs of fresh halibut from Seattle. Does anyone have suggestions on how to prepare it?

I ate some at a restraunt that was pan seared on Mon for lunch. It was incredible. I'd like to pan cook what I have also.

If you want it pan seared, I'd just lightly drizzle some olive oil with a touch of salt and pepper. If you want to get fancy, you could chop up some marjoram or other herb and put some of that on too. 4 minutes a side on high should keep you from the hospital.

JJohnson, I recently got ahold of 25lbs from my Father in Laws trip, we have been cooking it just about every way from fish taco's to macadamia crusted. The best one out of the bunch was simply grilled on high temp to the point of just flaking, keeping it at medium to medium well then just a little high quality balsamic vinegar and a fresh tomato compote (chopped tomatoes, garlic, red onion, EX Virg olive oil and fresh basil)

It came out super moist and delicious. My 5 year old even liked it.

The key with fresh halibut this time of year is not to over cook it. While it may seem odd Halibut is best served with a little translucence in the middle.

Enjoy, I know we have.

I always grill mine, very easy and extremely tasty. Take a ziploc bag put your halibut fillet in the bag and put about a cup or so of orange juice in the bag, zip it up and marinade for about 12 hours, oil the grill and cook about 7 minutes per side on medium high.

Another way is to use the ziploc method again and put Wishbone Italian dressing in the bag. I also use this for salmon on the grill. If you use Italian dressing marinade overnight.

Grilled or broiled with melted butter and seasoning salt to taste.

    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud.

    • Bonus points!  Well done Andy.  
    • Now I figured out how to add pictures. Time to submit for a score. 
    • I think they got greedy and it backfired. Lots of ads everywhere, requiring subscriptions for some forums. They split the boards up into two different websites (fishing MN and HSO), the boards went down for a while, and most the traffic got fed up it all and just moved on. I used to check this place daily, now maaaaybe once a week.
    • That would be my guess as well... If you run it "as is" you are going to wreck the motor due to the lean condition.
    • Man, this place used to be hopping with all kinds of posts and some great info being shared.  What happened?  This place is almost as dead as Aaron Hernandez.
    • How about the ones sold at fleet farm.  Full jacket military stuff probably not optimum for defense..so the normal stuff.
