Ingredients

Salsa Cruda:

Directions

  1. Coat a saute pan with olive oil. Toss in the garlic clove, crushed red pepper, bacon, and a couple drops of olive oil. Bring the pan to a medium heat. When the garlic is golden and very aromatic, remove it and discard. When the bacon has become crispy, toss in the Swiss chard stems, half of the chicken stock, and season with salt. When the chicken stock has reduced, toss in the Swiss chard leaves and season with salt. Cook the leaves until they are just wilted, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Coat another saute pan with olive oil and bring to a high heat. Pat the halibut fillet dry with a paper towel and season with salt.
  3. When the oil in the pan is very hot but not yet smoking, place the fish flesh side down and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. As the fish cooks it will turn from translucent to opaque. Turn the fish over and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes. When the fish is done it should be golden and firm but still moist.
  4. Place the Swiss chard in the center of the serving plate. Lay the fish directly on top. Top the fish with the Salsa Cruda.

Salsa Cruda:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. Season generously with salt. Taste to make sure it is delicious. Adjust seasonings if needed.
