Ingredients

Coconut Sauce

2 Tbsp grapeseed oil

1 medium onion, thinly sliced

1 Tbsp finely chopped ginger

1 Tbsp coriander seeds, crushed

¼ cup curry leaves

1 green chili, seeds removed and minced

1 cup coconut milk

1 pinch salt and pepper

Halibut

3 Tbsp grapeseed oil

4 6-oz halibut fillets

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground coriander

1 pinch salt and pepper

Sautéed Peas & Assembly

2 Tbsp butter

1 tsp black mustard seeds

1 cup fresh green peas, or frozen

1 pinch salt and pepper

Directions

Coconut Sauce

1. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. When it's hot add the onion and ginger and cook until golden, about 3-5 minutes. Add the coriander seeds, curry leaves and green chili and cook for 30 seconds. Add coconut milk, turn the heat down to low and continue to cook until sauce has thickened, about 3-5 minutes. Taste for seasoning and add salt as needed. Keep warm.

Halibut

1. Place a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and add oil. Season the halibut filets with cumin, coriander, 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, 3-4 minutes. Keep warm.

Sautéed Peas & Assembly

1. 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, 3-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

2. Ladle some sauce on each of 4 plates, place a halibut filet over it and garnish with sauteed peas.
