Poached Halibut in White Wine with Mini Green beans


image

Halibut is known for its delicate sweet flavor, snow white color and firm flaky meat. It is an excellent source of high-quality protein and minerals, low in sodium, fat and calories and contains a minimum of bones.

Halibut meat is firm and very white. It has a mild taste and is very lean. This fish can be cooked in any manner, but when over cooked, it can easily dry out. It dries out more easily if you are using frozen halibut so care must be taken when cooking halibut.

It is a very light, flavourful and healthy dish. Try it!

Ingredients: Serves 2
kosher salt and black pepper
1 pound green beans, trimmed
3 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
6 oz halibut slice, 2 slices
dry white wine

Directions:
1. Boil a small pot of water. Put the green beans in and cook 5 minutes more, until just tender. Drain and set aside.

2. In a seperate bowl, add melted butter over, chives, pinch of salt, and black pepper. Add the cooked mini green beans in the bowl. Toss gently with a spoon to combine. Squeeze a dash of lemon juice in n stir again. Set aside

3. Season the fish with salt and pepper and place in a large skillet.

4. Pour in enough wine to reach halfway up the sides of the fish.

5. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Cook for 6 minutes, covered, until the fish is opaque. I actually check on the fish ard 4mins. Fork test, if goes thru, fish is cook. Turn off the heat.

6. Serve with the beans. Spoon any extra sauce from the mini beans bowl on top of the fish.
