Great new recipe

Fresh, local halibut has hit our grocery stores up here. I've never cooked with it before and it's very popular in Alaska, so I decided to give it a shot.

A few nights ago I made these Anaheim Fish Tacos, and WILL be making them again. Not only are they sooo good, but healthy and super easy to make. The flavors were awesome, though next time I'll make it spicy. If you don't like halibut, I'm sure you could substitute with any other white fish.

Fish tacos? Crazy, I know, but give 'em a try ...

Here's the recipe (or go to


  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 Anaheim chile pepper, chopped
  • 1 leek, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 large tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 pounds halibut fillets
  • 1 lime
  • 12 corn tortillas

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and saute the chile, leek, and garlic until tender and lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Mix the chicken broth and tomatoes into the skillet, and season with cumin. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Place the halibut into the mixture. Sprinkle with lime juice. Cook 15 to 20 minutes until the halibut is easily flaked with a fork. Wrap in warmed corn tortillas to serve.
