Sorry for the corny and clichéd post title, but its hard to come up with this stuff!
Anyway, I’d been in the mood for grilled fish lately, and decided on a nice piece of halibut the other night. I’ve only been eating fish for a few years, and really didn’t start wondering too much about the fish I was eating until I started fishing. So until recently, I had no idea what a halibut looked like. I also had no idea what Fiorello LaGuardia looked like…so it was really helpful to find this photo of both together!
Many fish species are overfished, so it’s a good idea to peruse the Seafood Watch website. But honestly, I’m not sure what kind of halibut I had…um… acme halibut?
Grilling fish can be tricky sometimes, but big cuts, like halibut, tuna, bluefish or swordfish are a little easier. If some of it sticks, you don’t lose your whole fish. You can also use a fish basket. Just keep your grill hot, clean and oiled, and you’ll be fine. For the fish, I just brushed it with olive oil, and sprinkled on some salt and pepper. Halibut isn’t a particularly fishy tasting fish, so it doesn’t need much.
Also went with some grilled jersey fresh potatoes. I wasn’t quite ready to accept that I was no longer at the shore, so I sprinkled the potatoes with old bay, garlic and salt and pepper, and brushed with olive oil.
I used a bit too much old bay on the potatoes, so they were a bit too spicy- necessitating a nice dark local to wash them down!
This is awesome.
