Halibut for the Halibut

If you like sweet, flaky, juicy, and firm in a fish, find yourself some Wild Alaskan Halibut. In my new cookbook, The New Alaska Cookbook, Recipes from the Best Chefs of the Last Frontier features some impressive recipes, including some hot halibut dishes, like: Peppered Halibut with Ginger Butter, Porcini and Arborio-Crusted Halibut with Kalamata-Artichoke Relish, or Halibut Cheeks Braised in Shrimp Sherry Broth with Leeks, Mushrooms, and Sunchokes and many others.

Last nights main meal ~Wild Alaskan Halibut Tacos with Asian Slaw and Thai Mayonnaise, comes from Chef Shawn Calkins of http://www.alaskanchefshawn.com/Res.php5.  In the middle of winter, we ate a citrusy, tropic like dish. It was hot! Not hot in the sense of spicy hot, but sexy hot. We loved every delectable bite.

Tired of the cold and ready for the sizzle of summer or maybe just a hint of sun-kissed temps? Give this one a try and bring back the taste of sunshine. Check out the link for this recipe and other Alaskan recipes~just for the halibut.

An old legend holds that since the Bible says “God created all the great sea monsters” on the fourth day (Genesis 1:21), Thursday is the best day to watch for them to appear.

See you later!
