  1. Lemony Halibut with Greens

Lemony Halibut with Greens

This recipe brings a touch of spring to dinner, thanks to the shallots, parsley and greens. It would also taste great with Sablefish or Tuna. Purslane may be the richest plant source of omega-3s, other than flaxseeds or flax oil, and it contains many times more of these omega-3s than the greens in this recipe do. If you can find purslane, try using it in place of Swiss chard, spinach or kale. Purslane has a slightly sour and salty taste and can be used fresh in salads or cooked like spinach. Once cooked, it reveals a consistency that makes it good for soups and stews.

Ingredients

  • 4 Vital Choice Alaskan halibut portions (6 ounces each)
  • Vital Choice organic salmon marinade mix, to taste
  • 1/2 cup plus 4 tablespoons Vital Choice organic extra virgin olive, divided
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley
  • 2 teaspoons chopped garlic (or organic garlic granules)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon organic black pepper
  • 3 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup fish broth or clam juice
  • 8 ounces Swiss chard, spinach, kale or purslane
  • 1 can cannellini or Great Northern beans (15 ounces), drained and rinsed
  • Sea salt and organic black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Mix lemon juice, water, parsley, garlic, salt, and pepper in blender or small food processor. With machine running, slowly pour in 1/2 cup olive oil. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. In heavy nonstick skillet, sauté shallots in 2 tablespoons oil until lightly browned. Add broth. Stir in Swiss chard or greens until wilted. Stir in beans and heat through. Season to taste with salt and pepper; remove and keep warm.
  3. Rinse halibut fillets under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Brush both sides of fillets with remaining oil.
  4. Place fillets in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, over medium-high heat about 3 minutes, until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.
  5. Turn fillets over and sprinkle with salmon marinade. Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium. Cook an additional 2 minutes. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
  6. To serve, spoon greens on dinner plate, top with halibut and drizzle with dressing.
