Welcome to Foster City, my new neighborhood. As I walked around the city, I found myself in the “fish street” neighborhood one day, where streets are named after different types of fish! And there, I stood under a sign that read …
…when an idea popped in my head! I thought it would be cool if I blogged about it by creating a couple of concoctions using “Halibut” as the star ingredient.
Halibut is one of my favorite fish to cook or eat. Like most of the fish you find here in the US, it’s low fat, heart-healthy and doesn’t smell fishy at all! With its delicate sweet flavor, snow-white color and firm flaky meat, there are endless possibilities to using this versatile fish in the kitchen, be it baking, broiling, pan-frying, deep-frying, poaching or barbecuing. I decided to make two dishes that are a world apart to showcase the wonderful flavor and the firm texture of the fish - one, a Ceviche using the raw meat of the fish and the other, a grilled fillet marinated with freshly grated ginger, garlic and an Indian favorite, the”Tandoori” spice.
So, come down to Foster City and join me on the “Halibut St.”
