Halibut with Pea Purée

_MG_1377

Yum in my tum. Another cold day in NYC (come on spring!) – this is a tasty & easy dish that can be whipped up quickly! I forgot how much I love halibut – the steaming broth & cold peas really brought this together. Delicious!

  • Turn broiler on high – line cookie sheet with parchment paper & place 2 halibut filets (4-8oz each) on top.
  • Drizzle filets with EVOO & fresh ground pepper/salt
  • Place in oven for 8 – 10minutes
  • Heat a pan on stovetop: add 1 diced shallot, 1T EVOO, juice from 2 small lemons (or 1 large) & 1.5C of low sodium chicken broth – bring to boil & let simmer
  • In a food processor combine 2C of semi-defrosted peas (leave out for ~5min bf), 1/4C fresh mint leaves & 1t minced garlic
  • Pulse, add 1T EVOO, pulse again and then add water or more EVOO (I opted for H20) to a consistency where it is still sticky – set aside

To serve grab 2 bowls: ladle broth into both bowls, then dollop a generous serving of the pea purée in the center and lastly place the halibut on top of purée. Try to serve piping hot!
