Poor Man’s Lobster
Blogging the day after dinner because TaosNet, our internet provider, is horrible and was out all night. I used Cod instead of halibut and it came out fine. If you close your eyes, it really could almost be crab or lobster. Plus, it’s super easy.
- 1/2 c. sugar
- 1/4 c. salt
- 1 lb. halibut
- 1 cube (stick) REAL butter (sweet cream works great)
- 1-2 fresh lemons
- In a medium-large pot bring about 2 qt. of water, sugar, and salt to a boil. Cut halibut into 2-3 large pieces (so it cooks faster) and add to water. Boil for about 10 minutes or until halibut is nice and flaky. In the meantime, melt butter in a pot, but do not boil. Remove halibut from water, squeeze a little fresh lemon on it and serve with melted butter.
