Simple Broiled Halibut | #Cooking50States – Alaska Edition

Just a little trivia that I thought I would share with you.
Alaska is 663,267 square miles.
That is 2.469 times the size of Texas.
That is 4.058 times the size of California.

Or to put that in perspective…..
It is larger than…

Rhode Island
Delaware
Connecticut
New Jersey
New Hampshire
Vermont
Massachusetts
Hawaii
Maryland
West Virginia
South Carolina
Maine
Indiana
Kentucky
Tennessee
Virginia
Ohio
Pennsylvania
Mississippi
Louisiana
Alabama
And Arkansas…

…COMBINED!

You would still have a difference of nearly 42,000 square miles. So, if you threw in another Tennessee, you would about break even.
That kind of puts things in perspective.

Wow!

Once known as “Seward’s Folly,” the entire land mass of Alaska was purchased for a whopping 5.9 cents per square mile.

The main “harvest” that comes out of Alaska? Seafood!

With that in mind, I am going to share this simple halibut recipe that my husband makes.

028ab

To begin, turn your oven on to the low broil setting.

Trim the skin from your halibut (if you have any) and lightly salt and pepper the fillet.

011ab

Place the fillet in a broil-safe dish – I simply used a small iron skillet.

013ab

 

Place it in your oven and broil it for 8-10 minutes, or until it just begins to flake apart when pulled with a fork. The time will be determined by the size and thickness of your fillet.

While it is broiling, combine in a dish, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, 2 tablespoons soft butter, a tablespoon and a half of mayonnaise, 2 teaspoons of lemon juice and a couple dashes of your favorite hot sauce.

014ab

 

When the fillet has reached the doneness above, spread the mixture over the top of the fish.

016ab

 

Place the dish back under the broiler for about 2 more minutes, until the topping is melted together and just beginning to get a few golden patches. Sprinkle with some parsley.

Enjoy!

    Oh, that looks so yummy. Where do you buy that chili lime sauce and do they have a mild version that kids would eat?
