In this easy and impressive dish, grated fresh turmeric gives grilled halibut a rich golden hue. As a member of the ginger family, turmeric has a familiar bite that perfectly balances the slight sweetness of the fish.
Home » Recipes » Grilled Halibut with Turmeric, Garlic and Capers
2 large cloves garlic, grated
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 1/2 tablespoon grated fresh turmeric (from a 2- to 3-inch peeled piece, or 2 teaspoons ground turmeric)
4 (6-ounce) skin-on halibut steaks
2 tablespoons brined capers, drained and roughly chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
In a large bowl, stir together garlic, oil, salt and turmeric to make a paste. Add fish and toss until well coated. Let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare a grill or grill pan for medium heat cooking. Grill fish, flipping halfway through, until deep golden brown and just cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes total. In a small bowl, using a fork, mash capers with lemon juice. Spoon over hot fish and serve.
