Halibut with Curried Vegetables | The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book

Updated on September 16, 2011

Friday is fish day in many households. While the genesis of this may have been the Catholic Church; it has been adopted by many protestant households as well. In the Mid- West when I was growing up, many of the Clubs and Veterans Groups would hold Friday Fish Fries, although sometimes combine it to a Surf and Turf Menu but with a Fish Only Option available. This is a recipe out of The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book that gives you the heartiness of a good steak, the health benefits of a good piece of fish, and the tang of curried Veggies. The yogurt is a great ‘neutral coolness’ that is a great combination for this dish for those with a more sensitive pallet. However you choose to serve it, Do Enjoy!!

Halibut with Curried Veggies

1/3 cup Olive Oil, divided

¼ cup Dry White Wine

1 tbsp Parsley, minced

¼ tsp salt

1/8 tsp Pepper

1 ½ lbs Halibut Steak, cut 1 inch thick, (750 grams)

¼ tsp Curry Powder

1 ½ cup Carrots, thin sliced diag cut

1 ½ cup Cauliflower Florets, sliced

Plain Yogurt if desired

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine 3 tbsp Olive Oil, Wine, Parsley, Salt, and Paper; Blend well.

      Halibut is one of the best in my opinion, and does require flare added to it and it is a milder fish in the smell as stinking up the house. I'll be trying this recipe after my next trip into town.

      Good job, Hammer!

      The recipe sounds good but I also haven't cooked halibut. We all like fish however, so maybe I'll give it a try.

      HP Less so than others as it is not as oily or fatty, as say Cod or Salmon, Hope that helps and Do Enjoy!!

      Tom- Halibut cooked right is a very 'clean' taste, it has a lower fat content than most of the other common grilling fish (Salmon and sole) that's why it should mix well with other spicier side dishes. The key is cooking it through but not over cooking it either. If you give it a try let us know what you think and Do Enjoy

      I have a question about halibut. Is it a very strong fishy fish? I prefer a very mild fish. I'll look back for your answer.

      BPOP the real key to this recipe is making sure the Halibut is done right (that is passes the flake test)I think if you do it just right you'll have the chance to appreciate it. - Do Enjoy!!

      Good morning Hmr,

      I only tried halibut once and I must say it did not make my hit parade. But, I trust your palate so I will try this recipe. Thanks!
