The halibut, which is a flounder

June 27th, 2018 | main dishes

The name is misleading, because strictly speaking, the white halibut is a flounder, because he is right-eyed. His body is brown-black and white on the “blind side”, hence the name. It can become incredible four meters long. Ours was not that big…

White halibut is one of our favourite fish. It comes along fine-aromatic while low-fat and the preparation in the oven is very simple. A feast, which is superfast on the table. Promised.

White halibut on leek

(serves 4 to 6)

1,200 g white halibut
rinse, pat dry, spice with salt and pepper
½ bunch of flat leave parsley
use stems as a whole, put leaves aside
2 small leeks
cut into rings
4 spring onions, as a whole
place the parsley, leeks and onions on a baking sheet lined with baking paper
2-3 TS olive oil
70 ml white wine
drizzle on the vegetable
place the fish with the white skin down on the vegetables, close the baking paper, cook at 190° C for about 25 minutes
125 g soft butter
parsley leaves, chopped
1 garlic clove, pressed
stir into a garlic butter, spice with salt and pepper
after the end of the cooking time, remove the black skin from the halibut, if it does not dissolve easily, cook the fish for a few minutes longer
spread with half the garlic butter, serve
use the remaining garlic butter for the underside of the fish

Swabian potato salad on Valentine’s Day

No typical food on Valentine’s Day? Maybe not. But if your love is about 9,000 kilometers away since six weeks. And if he is still on duty for four more weeks… Valentine’s Day will be canceled anyway… So there is a pragmatic meal for the children and me: Swabian potato salad – with sausages or meatballs – or as we had it today with Skrei.
