Seared Halibut with Bacon and Bean Relish

Recipe by  

"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."

Directions

  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.

This recipe was excellent! I didn't change a thing. I watched the video and cooked along with it. Very easy fast and tasty. the halibut steaks are big and I didn't think I would finish it , but the fish is very light. I served a wedge of lettuce with blue cheese dressing along side. Will make this again!

I have to say, this was not so great. It had a funky flavor that we couldn't quite place. The only change I made was that I had halibut filets instead of steaks... maybe the skin flavored the fat a little and made the relish taste funky. Not a keeper, unfortunately.

Fabulous recipe! I am not much of a lover of fish because it is always too dry for me. I especially found that adding a cover to the saute and again to the fish, I was able to control the cooking. I added garlic in the saute since we grow the stuff and I love it. Forgot the pinch of salt and added it later but it did not seem to matter much since I salted and peppered the halibut beforehand (this step I believe is key). I also did not believe I had enough bacon oil when I went to pan fry the fish so I added a bit of grapeseed oil to the pan. The fish was the best I've had. I would definitely make this again. Watch the video before cooking the f

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. Other than that, I followed the recipe as designed. Definitely easy and awesome!

this is a fantastic & unusual dish - for once I managed to cook the halibut perfectly! i only had bacon fat so added a bit of roasted garlic & sundried tomatos to the bean relish...yum. the video was so simply & nicely done - it helped me feel confident in trying this out. thank you.
