From Kitchen to Table: Anderson Seafoods #Review

Share this! Your friends will love it...

Today I bring you another delicious meal From Kitchen to Table thanks to Anderson Seafoods.  A truly wonderful site where you can buy FRESH fish and have it sent direct to your door. You will recall that I have already shown you Chilean Sea Bass en Papillote and Salmon with a Late Summer Salsa on Brown Rice with the fish I was sent. 

Today I bring you Halibut Piccata (sort of, I was out of capers. Deal.)

This was a new fish for both of us. I had read that it was a delicate fish with little fat and I didn’t want to overwhelm it. I decided to go with a recipe I use often with chicken. The lemony sauce would be a perfect compliment for the fish.

The halibut was beautiful even after having been in the freezer for a bit. I set it in a bowl with a bit of salt while the pan heated. I put another pan in the oven to get hot. I was going to serve this over orzo so I put a pot of water on to boil.

I dusted the halibut with some flour. I put about a tablespoon of olive oil in the hot fry pan. I added the halibut and I let it cook for 4 minutes on each side.

I transferred the halibut steaks to the hot pan and I put it in the oven (300°) while I made the sauce.

I deglazed the pan with a split of white wine (I think he brought me home chardonnay this time). I then added about two cups of chicken stock (my homemade), a handful of dried parsley (no fresh, bummer) and 1/4 cup of lemon juice (hubby likes this meal on the tart side. You can adjust for taste.)

After the sauce had cooked down a bit – and it does rather quickly ’cause it’s a’boiling. I brought the halibut out of the oven and put it into the sauce for about a minute.

Somewhere in the middle of all of this the water for the orzo came to a boil and I cooked it, drained it, added a bit of olive oil, lemon and salt and pepper. I set it aside ’til I was ready for it.
I also roasted some snow peas for him and some green beans for me.

The halibut steaks from Anderson Seafoods are HUGE! One was big enough for us to share so I cut it in half and served it over the orzo with a bit of the piccata sauce.

The snow peas rounded out the plate.

The fish was cooked perfectly and we both agreed – and we were quite surprised by the fact that – the fish did not taste like it had been in the freezer for over a month. It tasted fresh. Cooking fish correctly does play a big role in how it tastes. I was truly impressed with the quality of this halibut and it is now a new fish for me to eat; I don’t eat many types of fish.

I have been just plain thrilled with every fish I have cooked from this company. I have one more left – mahi mahi. I am going to be placing an order for the holidays. I KNOW I will get quality fish that the hubby and I will enjoy. It keeps well in the freezer (deep freeze, not frost free) and it gives us a treat of fish which we don’t get here in cow country.
