After a great Alaskan Halibut catch this year, I started to think of all the different ways to prepare halibut and realized I did not want to eat 90 similar grilled halibut fillets and so decided to challenge myself to be creative and think of new ways to prepare the halibut with no repeats. I thought paella, tamales, Thai curries, raviolis, etc. and I definitely have to try the boiled lobster style! It sounded like a great idea.... until I saw the 90 pounds of halibut and was trying to find room in my small extra freezer.
So here's the challenge- I will try different creative ways to prepare this bounty of halibut in the next few months with no repeats. I'm a pretty serious home cook, but I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and try different cooking methods and flavors. I'm sure there will be some successes and some "its good for a change but don't make it again" meals. I'll keep you updated on the process and welcome feedback always. Because I like to pair wine with food, I'll share my pairing tips also. So for all you fisherman and halibut lovers, let's get started---we're cooking 4 the halibut!
