Seared Halibut with Chorizo Salsa
Succulent Halibut steaks topped with a sun-dried tomato and chorizo salsa. Recipe submitted by KnowBuddy Laura D.
1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
4 8oz Halibut Fillets
1/4 plus 1/8 teaspoon salt, divided
8 ounces chorizo sausage, casing removed
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle fish evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add fish to pan; cook 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Turn fish over; cook 4 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Remove fish from pan; keep warm.
For the salsa, return pan to medium-high heat. Add remaining 1 teaspoon oil and the chorizo, breaking up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Cook until nice and browned, about 5 minutes.
Add garlic and sun-dried tomatoes, stirring a moment until mixture becomes fragrant. Add the water and balsamic vinegar, turn heat to low, and simmer until tomatoes soften, stirring frequently. Add remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt, and black pepper to taste. Serve sauce with fish over a bed of greens.
