Halibut, The Poor Man's Lobster
submitted by: Fish Sniffer Reader, Les Higgins


Last week I fished with Art Roby and we got into several very nice Halibut off of Baker Beach, including a 31 pounder! I asked the skipper for his favorite Halibut receipt, he suggested the following:

  • 2 lb. Halibut fillets
  • 1/4 lb. butter
  • one lemon
  • 1 tbs. minced garlic
  • 20 oz bottle 7 up
Cube the Halibut into approximately 1 inch cubes, set aside. In a medium sauce pan bring the 7 up to boil. Melt butter and minced garlic together, set aside.

When the 7 up is at a brisk boil, place the cubes of Halibut (4 -5 pieces at a time, not to reduce the heat), when the Halibut begin to float off the bottom remove them from the heat. The trick is to not over cook them, they need to be firm. Dip the Halibut into the drawn butter and add a squeeze of lemon juice if desired.

With a little imagination you'll be sure its Lobster and not Halibut, nevertheless you can be sure it's mighty tasty. Thanks to Art for this little delicious trick and the great trip!
