Pan-Grilled Halibut with Chimichurri

halibut with chimichurri

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped shallots
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 (6-ounce) halibut fillets

Instructions

1. Combine the first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl; stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.

2. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper over fish. Add fish to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with sauce.

Wine note: The green herbs and tangy citrus in the chimichurri here need a bright, herbal white: sauvignon blanc. Discover the Clayhouse label out of California’s powerhouse Central Coast. Their 2008 Sauv Blanc ($15) is racy with lime, green apple, crisp stone fruit, and green herbs, with enough body to stand up to the meaty fish. —Sara Schneider
