Old Bay Halibut
Halibut is the type of fish that even non-fish eaters tend to like, with its mild, firm white flesh. Because it is so versatile, halibut easily works in loads of recipes and preparations. And there’s no denying halibut’s health benefits as a good source of low-fat protein.
FOR THE MAQUE CHOUX, HEAT:
FOR THE FISH, SEASON:
Here, a simple quick sauté with Old Bay seasoning is all that’s needed to make the halibut delicious.
For the maque choux, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add onion and garlic; sauté until softened, 2 minutes. Add corn, green beans, and butter beans; cook until green beans are bright, 2 minutes.
Stir in tomatoes, wine, cream, sugar, and hot sauce. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat to medium and simmer until cream is thickened, 3–4 minutes. Season maque choux with salt, black pepper, and pepper flakes.
For the fish, season halibut with salt, black pepper, and Old Bay. Heat oil in another skillet over medium-high. Add fish and sauté, about 4 minutes per side. Serve fish with maque choux.
If your green beans are large, cut them in half and cook a minute or two before adding the other beans.
The cream adds a little bit of body to the sauce without overpowering the fresh vegetables.
Press the fillet with your finger or a spatula — if it flakes easily and does not fall apart, it's done.
