… so to speak …
G and I consume a lot of fish. Not only is it great for the little gray cells; the stuff is abundant (certain species aside) and tastes great. On Mondays, you’ll find me preparing fish without fail and I do (humbly) admit to being pretty damn good when it comes to fish dishes.
On Saturday I picked up a lovely centre cut of halibut, freshly caught (wild) off the coast of Greenland. With fish in hand, I searched for something a little different and came across a preparation for broiled halibut coated in a spicy charmoula. Charmoula is a marinade most often associated with Algeria, Morocco and Tunisian cooking.
This charmoula is a mixture of olive oil, lime juice, shallots, red chili pepper, garlic, ground cumin, salt, pepper and freshly chopped rosemary.
2) the halibut awaits the charmoula; 3) preparing the charmoula ingredients
4) let it marinate overnight in the fridge; 5) brush off the charmoula and season the fish before broiling
Noting we also had piles of egg yolks in the fridge (the remnants of G’s weekend macaroon adventures), I found a Nobu recipe for a Japanese-inspired mayonnaise for asparagus I could serve. While Nobu deep fries his asparagus, I opted to simply steam mine.
good job brent!
@christao408 – Fish sauce may make the dish smell fishy?
That marinade contains some of the most common ingredients in Thai cooking (except the olive oil and cumin). I should try it out, add a little fish sauce, and see what we end up with.
Yummy – I have never had halibut cooked that way. I do love fish and may have to add this to my recipe list!
