At long long last Halibut is available in stores. Yes, it's expensive at $17 /lb, but oh so worth it. It isn't very 'fishy' tasting, so DaNece likes it a lot, and it has a nice firm texture not unlike shark.
Last night DaNece's fish got just a light coating of salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Mine got a bit heftier treatment with some cayenne pepper, paprika, cumin, salt, and pepper.
Quickly cooked in a super hot pan with a little olive oil. Simply delicious. Accompanying the fish were some peas (canned, which D really likes), quick-cook long grain wild rice, and some mushrooms and onions for me (which didn't really fit the flavors of the rest of the dish, but were on their way out so had to be used).
Now I have to save up some money to buy some more! :)
