Alaskan Halibut or Cod with Buttery Lime-Cilantro Sauce


 
Today's delicious recipe features an easy, Mexican-inspired cilantro-lime sauce, and can be cooked on a grill or under a broiler.
 
Either of our light, luscious Alaskan white fish – Cod or Halibut – will work equally well in this recipe.
 
Vital Choice Alaskan Halibut and Cod are both certified sustainable by MSC. Because halibut toughens and accumulates impurities as it grows large, ours is harvested at a small size, when it's especially pure and tender.
 
To keep the Mexican theme going, serve this saucy fish with rice and beans, plus a green vegetable or salad … or serve the saucy fish in tacos with rice, beans, and shredded lettuce.
 
Alaskan Halibut or Cod with Buttery Lime-Cilantro Sauce
Prep Time 25 minutes; Cook Time 8 minutes
Makes 4 servings
 
Four (6 oz each) Alaskan halibut OR Alaskan cod fillets
3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
3 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 Tbsp butter
Sea salt and organic black pepper
  • If you are grilling the fish, prepare the coals and oil the grate.
  • If you are broiling the fish, brush a broiler pan lightly with oil or butter.
  • Brush the fish with 1½ tablespoons of the lime juice, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and set aside for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, to make the sauce, melt the butter with the oil in a small saucepan or skillet over low heat.
  • Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add the cilantro and remaining lime juice and stir for 1 minute. Remove from heat and cover.
  • Place fish on pre-heated grill over a medium high fire OR under a broiler.
  • Grill or broil until just opaque in the center and flakey, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Baste once with the oil-butter-cilantro-lime sauce, one minute before the end of cooking.
  • Remove the fillets to a serving plate, pour the remaining sauce over them, and serve.
