How to make Halibut with Sweet Pea Puree:

Instructions:

  1. Start by bringing 1 cup of water to a boil in a small stockpot. Once the water is boiling add the jasmine rice to the water. Then cover with a lid, turn the heat down to low, and allow to cook for 20 minutes. Once done, remove from the heat and let sit covered for 10 minutes.
  2. While the rice is cooking, season the halibut with half of the salt and pepper. Then place the halibut between two pieces of paper towel to absorb all of the moisture. Leave the halibut there while you work on the peas.
  3. Heat another stockpot with 4 cups of water to a boil. Once the water is boiling add the frozen sweet green peas. Cook the peas for 4-6 Minutes
  4. Once the sweet peas are done cooking strain them and add the peas to a blender or food processor with 1/4 cup water, juice from half a lemon, and the rest of the salt and pepper. Blend for 1-2 minutes until you have a creamy puree consistency. You may need to add a little more water. Add no more than 1 tbsp at a time. Once done, leave the puree in the blender with the lid on. This will help the puree to stay warm.
  5. Time to cook the halibut! Heat a medium saute pan to medium heat. Once the pan is hot add the oil to the pan. Then immediately add the halibut to the pan in the oil. Place the fish presentation side down. Cook for 3-5 minutes. Keeping a close eye on the fish. You want the side facing the pan to turn a nice golden brown.
  6. Once golden brown flip the halibut and cook on the other side for another 3 minutes until done. Once done remove the halibut from the pan, then place on a piece of paper towel, and dab off any excess oil.
  7. Plate by pouring or spooning half of the sweet pea puree into the bottom of a bowl or plate. Then place your halibut on top of the puree. Finish by topping with sliced radishes, fresh dill, and microgreens. Serve with the rice on the side.
