Happy Monday, Friends! I hope you all had a wonderful July 4th holiday! Our children were with us for the week so I took a few days off to enjoy their company. But today I want to share with you one of our favorite seafood recipes. (As previously promised!) It’s a halibut with white beans recipe. I think you are going to love it!
My husband retired recently but traveled extensively during the course of his career. Often times he would have a great dish at a nice restaurant and come home and try to recreate it. This is how we’ve found some of our favorite recipes! As usual, we look up a recipe with similar ingredients then make it our own by adding or substituting a few of the items. This Halibut with white beans recipe has become a regular dish at our house. It’s so satisfying and delicious! So, without further ado, here is the recipe!
-1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
-3 minced garlic cloves (or we like to use the minced garlic in a jar and add 1-2 teaspoons)
-⅓ cup finely chopped green onions
-2-14 ounce cans of white cannelini beans, rinsed and drained
-½ teaspoon kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
-½ cup chicken stock
-½ squeezed lemon
-1 ½ pounds halibut filet (about 6 ounces per serving)
-2 tablespoons olive oil
-salt and pepper to taste
-garlic powder to taste
1-Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to a sauce pan and stir over medium heat.
2-Add onion and minced garlic, salt and pepper and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring often.
3-Stir in beans, chicken stock and lemon. Cover and simmer while you cook the halibut. (you can add a bit more chicken stock if needed) You want the beans moist but not runny, so allow the chicken stock time to cook down.
1-Rub the halibut with a bit of olive oil and season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
2-Add olive oil to a separate sauce pan over medium high heat
3-Sear the fish 3-4 minutes on each side.
4-Serve the fish over a bed of white beans. Garnish with fresh parsley or rosemary.
Confession. Since it’s usually only my husband and me, we still make two cans of beans with two halibut steaks. That with a glass or two of red wine is perfect!
And now we get to enjoy our meals under our newly installed chandelier! I dragged it all the way from Pennsylvania to North Carolina and I’m so happy I did! Dining under a crystal chandelier makes me glad.
Let me know if you try this halibut recipe or please share if you have one of your own. Meanwhile we are still trying to unpack and decorate the new house. I’ll have a few more rooms to show you soon. As always, thank you so much for stopping by! Let’s stay in touch, shall we? Have a great day! xoxo Dell
