Pan-roasted Alaskan Halibut with Warm Bacon Mango Relish
- 1 Halibut fillet (mine was 14 oz), pat dry and season w/ salt & pepper
- Half a mango diced
- 3 slices of smoked bacon diced
- 1/2 cup cilantro chopped
- 1 tbsp Sriracha hot sauce
- 1/2 a lime juiced
- 1/4 stick unsalted butter
- Olive oil
- Salt & pepper
Heat 2 tbsp olive oil over high heat then gently add the halibut filet. Cook on high for 2-min so that the skin gets crispy. Reduce heat to med-high and add butter to the pan. As the butter melts, tilt your pan at an angle and scoop the melted butter over the fish to poach. Do this until the top of the filet turns white (not translucent). Continue cooking on the stove on med heat, spooning the melted butter over the filet or finish under the broiler in your oven/toaster oven for approx 6-8 min depending on the thickness of your filet.
Warm Bacon Mango Relish
Add a tbsp of olive oil to a hot pan. Add bacon and cook until most of the fat has melted and the bacon is almost crisp. Add diced mango, lime juice, and sriracha, coating evenly. Add the cilantro, salt & pepper, and toss. Serve over finished halibut. I also cooked up a side of sauteed spinach to go with my halibut but feel free to choose your own side. Done!
