Here is the easy-peasy way to perfect fish.
Here is what you will need:
Iron pan with a lid.
Salt and fresh-ground pepper.
I used an enameled iron pan. The iron heats evenly and holds the heat.
Heat the pan, with the stove set on low. Once the pan is heated, add the fish. Sprinkle the fish with salt, pepper, paprika, a squeeze of lime juice, and add fresh cilantro.
Cover the pan and set a timer for 10 minutes. I turn the fish over at 10 minutes, and cook covered another 10-15 minutes or so.
However, the length of cooking time varies, and can be a bit longer, depending on the thickness of your fish. You will want to keep your eye on the fish, until you know how your stove will perform. The fish usually needs at least 20-25 minutes total, but with my stove, sometimes 25-30 minutes.
Slow cooking is a more forgiving way to cook fish.
While the fish cooked, I steamed cauliflower and rainbow baby carrots in a separate pan.
The halibut turned out moist, flavorful, and absolutely delicious! I garnished it with fresh cilantro, and served it with the steamed veggies.
To add extra pizzazz to the cauliflower and carrots, top with grass butter, paprika (my favorite spice), turmeric, cilantro, salt, fresh-ground pepper, and a squeeze of fresh lime.
This made a late evening dinner for one, but could easily be doubled
to serve two.
