Cooking with Corazon: Episode XXX

Lemon Lime Halibut
with Caramelized Pear


For today's installment in my ongoing quest for culinary excellence I offer up the following: fresh lemon/lime halibut served atop a caramelized pear.


So the pear idea sort of came out of nowhere. I had a few pears that I didn't know what to do with, so I decided to incorporate them in with the fish. To be honest, the sweetness of the candied pear mixed very well with the fish. Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

- Fresh halibut
- 2 lemons
- 2 limes
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. thyme
- 1 tsp. dill
- 1/4 sliced pear
- 1 tbs. brown sugar
- a little butter.

Directions:

1.) Marinade halibut in lemon and lime juice for at least 30 minutes.
2.) Heat some olive oil and a little butter in a pan.
3.) Add halibut to pan once the oil is hot.
4.) Add the salt, thyme and dill to fish.
5.) Cook for about 10 minutes.
6.) In separate pan, heat a little oil and butter.
7.) Add sliced pear and cover with brown sugar. Cook until sugar and butter have melted to the pear.
8.) Remove and serve the pear and fish together.
9.) SCARF!!!

As always, Buen Provecho!!!
