As the days grow colder and colder in Ontario, and the days start getting dark earlier I decided to do something a little different where I didn't have to go outside to the BBQ. As much as I LOVE seafood and fish, all of us never seem to eat enough of it. Which really is a shame. They are packed with omega 3 and are a very good source of lean protein. The recipe that I found was originally made for sea bass filets, however I decided to switch it to halibut steaks which turned out equally as amazing. This great recipe can become anybodies staple, weekly meal. It is quick, simple, tasty and ultimately; healthy. I added a horseradish mayo which really balanced out the full flavour of the halibut and really gave it some zip. The salad was a great blue cheese and vinaigrette salad which again balanced everything out. The garlic bread was a last minute addition. I have made it a couple times with a very special recipe of mine. I will post it eventually but not this time. The garlic bread was great but not fully necessary. There was more than enough fish to have a substantial meal with just it and the salad. All in all an incredible recipe and meal that I will be sure to make again.
