Turmeric Rubbed Wild Halibut with Cracked Black Pepper
Slabs of fresh, wild-caught Pacific halibut are gorgeous when served against a backdrop of turmeric-colored, creamy coconut milk studded with ginger slivers, coarsely cracked black peppercorns and sweet-smelling cinnamon. The beauty of this curry sauce made with canola oil is that it never overshadows the delicate flavor of the fish. Plus the halibut and canola oil provide different types of healthy omega-3 fats.
