Halibut Sandwich Spread

If you have leftover Halibut, and don't know what to do with it, this is a great solution!

It takes about 5 minutes to make this delicious dish. Inspired by a common halibut spread recipe served all across Alaska in lodges and bed & breakfasts, this recipe is great as a sandwich spread, open-faced on toast, or as a spread for crackers. The spread is meant to be served as a cold dish - so it is best to let it refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. It is also worth mentioning that if you are using leftover halibut from a meal, it is best to let the halibut cool down to at least room temperature before preparing the dish - the meat is easier to flake when it is cold.

Ingredients

6 oz. cooked halibut - flaked by hand then lightly shredded with a fork

1 tbsp celery - finely chopped into little cubes

1 tsp green onion - finely chopped

1 large or 2 medium dill pickles, finely chopped

2 tbsp mayonnaise

salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Preparation

Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix them well. Be sure to salt and pepper the spread to suit your taste. For those of you that are squeamish about mayonnaise I recommend blending one tablespoon into the mix at a time.

Some folks add a tsp of cider vinegar and a dash or two of garlic powder as well. If you do not have green onions, you can use 1 tsp of any other onion variety or a shallot - just make sure they are finely diced.

Serve on crackers or as a sandwich spread.

Stays good in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Yum! It's a lot like tuna salad, only tastier, I bet. I might try it on a salad, with a squeeze of lemon.
