Ingredients

Coconut Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped ginger
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup dried curry leaves
  • 1 tablespoon coriander seeds, crushed
  • 1 green chili, seeds removed and minced
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • A pinch of salt and pepper
Halibut:
  • 3 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • Four 4 to 6-ounce halibut fillets
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • A pinch of salt and pepper
Sauteed Peas:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon black mustard seeds
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen green peas
  • A pinch of salt and pepper

Directions

For the coconut sauce: Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. When it is hot, add the ginger and onions and cook until golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the curry leaves, coriander seeds and green chili and cook for 30 seconds. Add the coconut milk, turn the heat down to low and continue to cook until the sauce has thickened, 3 to 5 minutes. Taste for seasoning and add salt as needed. Keep warm. For the halibut: Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. Sprinkle the halibut with the coriander, cumin, salt and pepper and place them in the pan. Cook on one side for 4 minutes, and then turn the heat down and continue to cook until they are done, 3 to 4 minutes. Keep warm. For the peas: Place a small skillet over medium-high heat and add the butter. When it begins to foam, add the mustard seeds and cook until they begin to pop, about 1 minute. Add the peas and saute until they are bright green and tender-crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. To serve: Ladle some coconut sauce on each of 4 plates. Place a halibut fillet over it and garnish with sauteed peas.
