Halibut Asian Style

  • 2 pounds halibut fillets, cut into chunks
  • 3 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • Olive oil
  • Sesame oil
  • 3 large garlic cloves, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 lemon
  • 5 sprigs of fresh coriander, leaves pulled off
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • 1 fresh red chile, thinly sliced on the diagonal

Place the sesame seeds onto a flat dish, then add the halibut chunks, turning them over in the seeds to nicely coat.

Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and 1 tablespoon sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add about 3/4 of the sliced garlic to the pan and fry for 1 minute, or until golden and crisp, remove from heat and use a slotted spoon to quickly transfer to a plate, leaving the oil in the skillet.

Return the pan to the heat, then add the sesame-coated halibut to the garlic oil. Sear on one side for 1 to 2 minutes. Using a spatula, turn over and cook on other side for another 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Place the grated ginger in a small bowl with the soy sauce, 1 teaspoon sesame oil and the remaining sliced garlic. Add the zest of the lemon and 2 tablespoons lemon juice, then mix well to combine. Taste and add more lemon juice, if needed.
