    I have a gorgeous halibut steak that my wife and I want to have for dinner tonight. We've done the mayonnaise thing (smear with mayo, crumbs and then bake) and are looking for something different.

    Ideas?

    Sear the halibut on both sides and place in a 400f oven to finish, about 6-8 minutes.
    In the same pan you seared the halibut in, add olive oil, diced onion, green pepper, salt, pepper and garlic. Briefly sautee. Add white wine to deglaze pan. When half evaporated, add butter to cream the sauce. Return halibut to pan, sautee briefly and transfer to a plate. Garnish with good greek olives.

    Cooking Light has a Halibut recipe that they love and that I think is pretty good.

    You take 2 cups of corn flakes, crush them fine, and mix with 1/4 cup flour.

    Dredge fish in milk/egg-white wash, then coat with the flakes/flour mixture.

    Cook in a skillet with a litle olive oil for about 4 minutes per side.

    They suggest serving with a mayo/aioli type sauce.

    I tried it and liked it. The corn flakes really make a good, tasty crust.

    Sorry gang - missed seeing the replies before the fish hit the skillet.

    I went ahead and took the fillets, (2 jumbo fillets mind you) cut them into 4 or 6 oz strips, added a touch of EV Olive Oil, kosher salt and pepper then topped with a liberal amount of diced tomatoes. In the pan I added about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of a nice white wine, 1 shallot sliced and a mashed garlic clove. I added the fish to this and brought it up to a boil. Covered tightly and let poach over medium heat for about 9 minutes.

    Added chopped fresh basil and served with a really nice bread and glass of wine.

    D-lish!

    Thanks for the other recipes and ideas! Maybe next time.... ;c ;c
