Halibut Baked with Gremolata


This recipe was inspired by The Baking Barrister a wonderful and creative blog, she served halibut with Gremolata. I came to find out that Gremolata is a traditional Italian condiment made from finely minced parsley, garlic and lemon zest. This zesty garnish is a traditional accompaniment to Milanese Veal shank, it served as both a garnish and a condiment. 
I actually made the gremolata and baked it with the halibut in my Le Creuset to infuse the flavors more and served over cous cous this one is a keeper.


Ingredients:

  • 2 wild Alaskan Halibut steaks
  • 1/2 a cup chopped fresh Parsley
  • one shallot diced
  • 3 cloves of finely chopped garlic
  • about one tablespoon chopped mint 
  • the zest from one lemon and lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • olive oil
Method:

  1. mix the parsley, mint, lemon juice, zest, shallots, garlic and olive oil together to make the gremolata
  2. add the halibut to the oven proof dish drizzle with olive oil and coat with gremolata and bake for 20 minutes at 350
  3. serve over cous cous and vegetables
  4. enjoy


Has anyone else eaten gremolata before it was my first time :-)
