This week in The Galley I want to talk to you a little bit about growing up some fish and one of my favorite fish to do is Halibut. One of my favorite ways I cook this is to make skewers. I’m going show you one technique that I like to do especially with Halibut.
And here are some fresh Halibut that we caught recently. What I’m going to do is before I put on the skewer, I want to wrap it with some bacon. So I have bacon and when you work with bacon you want to cook it first. You don’t want to just wrap raw bacon on here. It won't work it. So what I’ll do is I cook it a little bit first, take half of piece, wrap it around there and then first I’ll put it on a piece of bell pepper then put the bacon wrapped Halibut. And then another half a piece, wrap it and then I have some pearl onions, slide that on there, take my Halibut. That already looks good. We have some bell pepper. And you can use whatever kind of bell pepper you like I just like to use a colored bell pepper, it adds a lot in the presentation.
And if you want, you can put in another onion in here and then take another piece. Here, I’m going to try a whole piece and just kind of show you how it looks. It’s a little bit easier to work with half a piece, the whole piece together wrapped all the way around it. And we’ll finish it off with some bell pepper. Put an onion just put this right on the end here and just a small handle on this, you’re going to work with it.
We’ll do one more for you and be creative with this. If you don’t like bell peppers, you like some other vegetables whatever you like to work with. I've even used jalapeños, other things like that to make it a little bit spicy so just be a little creative. And before we drop this on the grill, two things I want to do is take my granny’s spice and rub and just kind of spread it on there, add a little bit more flavor to it.
And before you ever use the grill, you also want to make sure you coat it with some oil so the fish doesn’t stick. We always want to oil it a little bit just so the fish doesn’t stick and nice how it grill here going. That’s all you need. And we’ll take our fish. Just lay it right on top of the grill. And you can do this at home on a barbeque or I can do it here in the boat. Solo barbeque on the boat, just let it sit there.
Now just give it a light coat of oil right on top of it. This is going to taste so good. I’m going to give it one more shot of the spices. And what I was like to do whenever I’m picking fish is to add some lemon and lime. I really believe it adds a lot to the flavor. We’ll just sprinkle on a little bit, a little bit on there.
All right let’s take a look at our fish and how it looks, oh that looks perfect. So what I’m going to do is just take this right off the grill, that just perfect the way this is supposed to look, and just slide this off I mean just slide this off and serve them, however you want to serve them. You can make this a dish, you make this an appetizer, it’s an easy dish to do. And what I’m going to do is just take some dipping sauce and take a piece of the Halibut and see how the bacons right on there into a bite. That tastes really good.
A very simple dish to do, you can do this in lots of different fish but I love doing it with Halibut it’s easy to work with. Again, this is a dipping sauce that we use at the end and my spice and rub.
If you’re having trouble finding the spice and rub or the dipping sauces in your stores, please visit out website and everything is there. Well, let’s get back on the water and show you more exciting action here on Sport Fishing.
