Seared Halibut with Bacon and Bean Relish

Seared Halibut with Bacon and Bean Relish

Chef John

"I decided to try a sort of hot bacon and bean relish by slicing beans thin and cooking them raw in hot bacon fat. I used a little lemon loved how this came out with the seared halibut."

  1. Season halibut steaks generously with salt and black pepper. Refrigerate until needed.
  2. Place bacon in a skillet and cook over medium heat. When bacon is about half cooked, 4 to 6 minutes, stir in beans and pinch of salt. Cook, stirring, until bacon is crisp and beans are almost tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer bacon and beans to a bowl and return skillet with bacon drippings to the stove over medium-high heat.
  3. When bacon drippings just begin to smoke, place 2 halibut steaks in the skillet; cook until browned and meat is just starting to pull away from the bone, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer steaks to a plate and repeat for remaining 2 steaks.
  4. Remove skillet from heat and pour in water; bring to a boil while scraping any browned bits off the bottom of the pan. Return beans and bacon to the skillet and stir in lemon juice; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon hot bean and bacon relish over halibut steaks and serve.

Fabulous, very easy recipe. We did not have the beans, so I used brussels sprouts instead, which I would recommend. I halved the sprouts and then seared them in a pan while cooking the bacon. ...

This was good. I did make some substitutions like mahi mahi for the halibut-it's cheaper and asparagus for the beans. It was super easy to make.

Very nice! My husband loved it!

We really like this recipe. I added a few capers and a little of the juice, as well as a splash of white wine. With the lemon juice, the sauce was nicely piquant and the combination of flavor...
