Making Tuesday Tasty-Grilled Halibut With Chimichurri

I'm no fish eater, as a matter of fact I wish that I was so much because it can be so healthy for you with the omega fatty acids, etc. I do like Halibut though, it's such a mild flavored fish and can take on the flavors you cook it with or marinate it in. Here's a lovely recipe from epicurious.com that is healthy and super flavorful. For all my fish eaters out there that want to try something new.


1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced shallot
3/4 teaaspoon hot red-pepper flakes
3/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
4 (6- to 8-ounce) halibut steaks (3/4 to 1 inch thick)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, water, garlic, shallot, red-pepper flakes, and 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper until salt has dissolved. Stir in parsley. Let chimichurri stand 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare grill for direct-heat cooking over medium-hot charcoal (medium heat for gas).
Pat fish dry, then brush with vegetable oil and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper (total).
Oil grill rack, then grill fish, covered only if using a gas grill, turning once, until just cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes total.
Serve fish drizzled with some of chimichurri; serve remainder on the side.
Cooks' notes:
·Halibut can be cooked in a hot oiled large (2-burner) ridged grill pan over medium heat.
·Chimichurri can be made 1 hour ahead and kept, covered, at room temperature.

Thank you epicurious for letting me borrow the recipe and photo!
