Bite with Belkys: Alaskan Halibut with Edamame Succotash and Herbed Orange Sauce from KM at the Grapevine
This fish dish comes from the far east -- and the flavor is far out as well. Time to grab a bite with Belkys.
The Chef: Kevin Mccarthy
The Restaurant: KM at the Grapevine
The Dish: Alaskan Halibut with Edamame Succotash and Herbed Orange Sauce
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 halibut filet (8 oz.)
- 1/4 cup corn kernels
- 1/4 cup shelled edamame
- 1/8 cup diced yellow peppers
- 1/8 cup diced red peppers
- 1/8 cup cooked black beans
- 1/4 cup small diced tomatoes
- 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
- 1 teaspoon thyme leafs
- 1 teaspoon sliced chives
- 1 tablespoon chopped basil
- Orange Sauce
- 3 cups orange juice
- 2 ounces unsalted butter cut into chunks
-Take the halibut filet and dry it with some paper towels.
-Season with salt and pepper, and place it in a non-stick sauce pan heat with olive oil til hot.
-Cook until it starts to brown slightly on the edges - about 2-3 minutes on each side, depending on how thick the filet is, and you can also place the pan in a 350 degree oven if needed.
-On a pan coated with olive oil heat the corn, black beans, edamame, peppers and tomatoes.
-Sautee and season with salt and pepper.
-Place it on a dish, add the filet on top and ladle with the orange sauce.
-Reduce the orange juice down to a thick glaze. Do this in a narrow sauce pot, slowly on medium heat. Use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides (you can add other citrus juices to the orange juice, just make sure it still equals 3 cups)
-Place a small metal box on top of a small pot simmering water. Use a towel to hold the bowl and you will need a small whisk to mix the sauce.
-Add the juice reduction and the herbs. Heat the reduction and slowly add the cold butter chunks, one piece at a time.
-Keep adding butter chunks once the butter is incorporating into the mix.
-Take the bowl off if the butter is melting too fast. The temperature should be warm, not hot.
-Cover and keep in a small place till needed.
