A delicious one-pan recipe that can be prepared in the galley of a fishing boat or a well-equipped kitchen. There are a couple tricks to success: don’t over stir, and remove the onions when cooking the halibut. Read on.
One pound halibut
One bell pepper
½ cup soy sauce
½ cup ketchup
Marinade the halibut. Cube the halibut, about one pound for four people. Marinade in ½ cup soy sauce, ½ cup ketchup, 3 tablespoons crushed garlic. Marinade while sautéing the onion and pepper.
Chop and sauté one whole onion and one bell pepper (orange, red or yellow, not green) in a couple tablespoons of olive oil. Remove and transfer to a bowl. Add the halibut to the pan and cook until the sauce reduces, about ½ hour on medium-high heat. Don’t stir, just shake the pan a bit, otherwise the fish breaks up. Add the onions and peppers back in and serve.
Warm tortillas and serve with salsa, avocado and grated cheese.
