Tuesday Dinner Request- Halibut (SEA)
Friend in town and wants halibut. Any ideas where we can go for really well prepared straight up fish? She is staying on Lake Union, so we can go Belltown, Cap Hill, Wallifnord, basically any surrounding neighborhood that isn't toooo far. Right now thinking about Branzino or Anchovies and Olives. We've both done Ettas many times, and Flying Fish, so hoping for something new.
Halibut's in season right now, so your timing is great.
For me, it's a shame to hide that sweet Halibut flavor with fancy sauces and strong flavors, so I'm a big fan of simple preparation. I don't think you can do better than a broiler or a skillet, some Halibut, a little butter and S@P, maybe a lemon.
Add a vegetable, some bread, and a crisp butterleaf salad and spend all that coin you've saved for a nice white wine.
