Halibut with Green Coconut Curry-Roasted Nori Rolls
Yield: 1 serving per fish filet
2 cans of coconut milk
Kefir lime leaves
Extra-virgin coconut oil
Nori seaweed sheets
Take halibut steaks and dust both sides lightly in a mixture of flour. Salt, pepper, and turmeric. Sear on both sides in clarified butter or oil. Finish in a hot oven if steaks are thick and still rare. Mince 3 shallots and cook slowly in a saucepan until soft. Add a little chopped ginger and lemongrass, cilantro, chopped jalapeno pepper, a pinch of curry powder and garlic, and cook several minutes more. Add 2 cans of coconut milk and simmer until slightly reduced. Toss in several kefir lime leaves if available and some roughly chopped basil. Taste for seasoning.
Cook a package of soba noodles according to directions. Drain and season with crushed red pepper, soy sauce, and extra-virgin coconut oil. Add some slivered snow peas, pine nuts, etc. Wrap in Nori seaweed sheets. Place on roasting pan and roast for around 5-10 minutes. Place 2 Nori rolls in a shallow bowl, put halibut on top and ladle on some coconut curry sauce in shallow bowl. Garnish with lime leaves, fried shallots, and radish pickle, etc.
