Have you ever tried broiled halibut with mushroom salsa? It’s not a common dish, but it is one worth trying. If you want to stay healthy but feel like experimenting, then this halibut and mushroom salsa recipe is the perfect recipe.
Make This Broiled Halibut With Mushroom Salsa For A Change
For this dish, cremini mushrooms are great. These mushrooms have a distinct earthy taste and once sautéed they release all their flavors. If you don’t have any cremini mushrooms handy, then you can go for shiitake, maitake, Portobello, or white button mushrooms.
You will also need green onions, parsley, ginger, and lemon juice for flavoring. Other good options are lime juice, apple cider vinegar, cilantro, ginger powder, or onion powder. Don’t forget the salt and pepper as well!
When it comes to the creamy factor in this dish, mayonnaise is key. However, if you are trying to stay healthy, you can use full-fat plain Greek yogurt instead. Other options are coconut milk or whipping cream.
As you may have guessed, the halibut is the star of the show in this dish. Still, not everyone has it available year-round, which is why it is a good idea to think of other options. Other fish that work well are fluke, flounder, cod, or sea bass. In a pinch, even salmon can do the trick here.
Now that you have all your ingredients ready, it is time to get cooking. Make sure your oven broiler is set before you even start. Mix everything well and in the meantime bake the fish for about 5-6 minutes.
Once your fish is cooked and hot, serve the mushroom salsa on top. Return the fish to the broiler for a few more minutes.
Enjoy this dish served over white rice, quinoa, or orzo. For added nutritional value, add asparagus, zucchini, or bell peppers.
