Ahhh…springtime. A time for new beginnings, melting snow pack (if you’re in the northeast), cleaning, and of course FRESH HALIBUT. At E&E Foods, we are offloading day boat halibut every day to our Yakutat plant, and flying it fresh on the next flight to anywhere Alaska Air flies cargo.
Halibut is a wonderfully versatile fish to cook; you can grill or bake fillet or steaks, and you can fry it to make the best fish and chips you will ever have.
One of our favorite dishes to make with halibut are fish tacos.

Halibut tacos should be simple…..a marinade, some garnishes, and some crema.
For marinade, mix even parts lime juice, tequila and olive oil. Mix in with chopped peppers, onions, capers and minced garlic. Spread over the fish and bake for 10 min at 425 degrees.

Serve with avocado slices, cilantro, and the crema recipe below. Enjoy, happy spring!

For Crema:
• 1/2c sour cream (I use lite)
• 2-3T milk, for thinning
• juice of half a lime
• 1-2t hot sauce, depending on how spicy you like it (like Tapatio)
• 1t taco seasoning
• salt to taste
