  • Poor Man's Lobster (a twist on Halibut)

    Here is a simple and tasty way to change it up for Halibut. Tried it a couple days ago and it was actually really good.
    Not sure if it tastes like lobster but that is what it is called.

    1 med to large pot of water (As you would use to boil spaghetti).
    1/4 cup salt
    1/4 cup white sugar
    2 heaping tablespoons of unsalted butter.
    Halibut cut into chunks (we did about 1.5 x 1.5 inch chunks some bigger.

    Bring water to a rumbling boil then stir in salt ,sugar and butter.
    Let boil for a couple minutes stirring well to get butter,salt and sugar well mixed in water
    Add Halibut chunks. Wen fish floats to surface it is pretty much done.the bigger chunks needed a minute or so after floating.
    It took 5 minutes total(from time we dropped the fish) to cook enough to serve four.
    Nice and moist and a little rich with the butter. will definitely do it again

    We also prepared some melted garlic butter as we would for prawns and had it on the side for dipping.
