Halibut Masala

This grilled halibut dish is such a simple and delicious meal that will surely impress your guests. You can substitute any white fish of your choice.
Preheat oven to broil setting.
In a small oven proof frying pan, heat butter on medium heat on stove top until just melted. Turn off the heat and then pour the butter in a small bowl leaving about 1/3 in the pan.

In another small bowl mix spices with lemon juice and water to form a paste. Set aside.

Wash fish in cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. Place it in the buttered pan, turn once or twice to coat with butter. Pour the masala mixture on top of the fish to cover completely. Set aside for 10 minutes.

Pour remaining butter over the fish in the pan. Place the pan in the oven about 10 inches away from the element. After about five minutes, baste the fish with the butter in the pan. Cook for another 5 minutes, being careful not to overcook the fish. Remove pan from the oven and plate the fish. Finish with spiced butter from the pan. Serve with basmati rice and salad.

A home run! Says my husband...

I’m new to cooking fish in my home, all part of a newly revamped diet - so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I tried this receipe and to my delight it was easy to make, light on the system and “a home run” according to my husband. He asks for this meal regularly which makes it so much more fun to make! I’d highly recommend it as a weekday special - I’ve also tried with cod and haddock, equally delicious!

We love this recipe

This recipe is so delicious and so flavourful, and so EASY!! We have served it for company many times, and it always receives rave reviews. We have done it with cod also, when we didn't have halibut. All kinds of goodness in this recipe! I have to keep replacing my tadka masala because we make this recipe so often.

Well that was possibly the easiest thing I've ever had to make for dinner. Thanks!
