Dinner & a Movie Recipe: Jaws
Halibut and mahi mahi are similar in texture to shark meat, but easier to cook and readily available in supermarkets. Also, because sharks are predators and in many waters at the top of the food chain, high mercury levels can be a concern. Try this recipe with halibut or mahi mahi filets for a tasty accompaniment to your movie.
Grilled Halibut with Parsley Shallot Citrus Sauce
4 halibut filets 1 large shallot, finely chopped 2 tablespoons butter Juice from 4 oranges Juice from 2 lemons 2 teaspoons orange zest 1 teaspoon lemon zest 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar ¼ cup fresh parsley, minced ¼ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon black pepper
Over medium heat melt butter. Add shallots and sauté for about 5 minutes or until soft, but not browned. Place shallots and drippings from the pan in a medium bowl. Add next 8 ingredients and stir to combine. Clean grill thoroughly and rub grates with oil or cooking spray. Heat grill to high. Prepare filets for grilling by rinsing in water, drying completely and seasoning with salt and pepper on both sides. When grill is ready add fish. Do not move filet until it is ready to turn. After turning baste with sauce and reduce heat to medium. Allow fish to cook through slowly. Remove from grill and serve with the citrus sauce.
