Kick off the first week of spring with executive chef Laura Frankel's famous poached halibut in extra virgin olive oil.
Use your best quality olive oil for this recipe. The fish will be buttery and delicious. This recipe is brightly flavored and perfect for spring time. It is also great for Passover and a modern alternative to gefilte fish.
I remember the first time I watched a chef/friend poach fish in olive oil. It was one of those moments when the light bulb goes off! It is absolutely genius. The fish cooks through a gentle heat transfer and gains the delicate olive oil flavor. The fish is moist and luscious. Enjoy the fish hot, cold or at room temperature….
