Roasted halibut cioppino inside the Ritz-Carlton on Key Biscayne

The Chef: Ezio Gamba

The Restaurant: Cioppino inside the Ritz-Carlton on Key Biscayne.

The Dish: Roasted Halibut

Ingredients for Halibut:

  • 2 halibut filets cut into 7-oz. pieces
  • 3 Tbs olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 smoked bacon pieces- sliced 2 inches by 2 inches

Method of Preparation:

  • Heat olive oil in a pan. Season fish with salt and pepper- to taste.
  • When the pan begins to smoke- sear the halibut until it's golden brown about 3 minutes on each side.
  • Now, brush on Chef Ezio's homemade barbecue sauce and finish in the oven at 300 degrees- for 4-6 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish. When you see little white dots on the sides of the fish- it's done.
  • In a pan, cook bacon pieces until crispy- drain and set aside.

    You know what they say about a man that has a big foot and long hair? Yeah, that they would make a really good Hercules. And while Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock has big feet, well he needed a little help in the hair department. Tonight The Rock is talking about how he became Hercules; everything from his feet, hair and to that fabulous body.
