Add a little spice to your Alaska Halibut with this delightful blend of wasabi goodness.
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 Tablespoon sweet chili sauce
1/2 to 1 teaspoon wasabi
1 Tablespoon chopped chives, divided
4 Alaska Halibut portions (4 to 6 oz. each), thawed or frozen
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon black sesame seeds, if desired
In small mixing bowl, blend mayonnaise, sour cream, chili sauce, wasabi, and 2 teaspoons chives. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
Rinse Alaska Halibut under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Heat a heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brush both sides of halibut with oil. Place halibut in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, about 3 to 4 minutes, until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.
Turn halibut over and sprinkle with garlic salt. Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium. Cook an additional 6 to 8 minutes for frozen halibut OR 3 to 4 minutes for thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
To serve, spoon 1/4 cup sauce over each fillet. Sprinkle with remaining chives and sesame seeds.
