Halibut Stir Fry
A stir fry dish is a great weekday option when you are a little pressed for time and is a great way to incorporate various vegetables in one dish. They are a great way to use up vegetables from the past week and to stretch a small amount of protein for 3-4 servings. It’s a healthy dish but one that does not leave you feeling deprived or hungry later. I wanted to try a stir fry dish with cubes of halibut and lot of vegetables in a spicy chili garlic sauce. I marinated the halibut cubes using a jar of chili garlic sauce that is pretty spicy; the sauce is made by the same company that makes sriracha sauce, if that gives you a clue about the spice level. I like a colorful blend of vegetables, so I used onions, mushrooms, carrots, red peppers, snow peas, and Napa cabbage.
The dish was definitely spicy and had some long lasting heat. The chili sauce turned the halibut a light pink color so that it almost looked like salmon, but the taste was definitely a moist flakey halibut. You can use any combination of vegetables you like or have on hand, I usually aim for lots of colors and different textures to make the dish interesting. The brown rice took longer to cook than the preparation and cooking of the stir fry, but that just gives you time to set the table and open the wine. A fantastic addition to your halibut repertoire.
