It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Halibut?

Little StevenLittle Steven Posts: 27,352
Wife picked up halibut fillets from a good market for dinner. I've grilled steaks but never fillets. I love it en papillote but haven't done any fish sous vide yet. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    When I lived in Alaska and could catch the things, I wrapped in tin foil and filled with goodies.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    personally I would cook it alder planked, probly no smoke, I think its to mild for smoke, IMO. The plank will give it just a little something.  cook it around 250 to 300. mabey 30 mins or so, then a nice lemon sauce, just make that up. just saying, you know how I am.

    I would cook them like I cooked my Chilean Sea Bass. Amazing meal!

    Cooked them in parchment paper...

  • Yes- I'll have TFJ chime in when she gets home. She does SV halibut in an Asian broth with noodles that is to die for. I think it's on here. I'll check. Great stuff and Halibut is out of this world SV with a hard sear on one side.

    dangit- not on here. You are on  your own. I have a feelin gyou might be able to figure this out :). Seriously though, the SV halibut with hard sear on the top is killer.

    Thanks CT that is exactly what I was thinking. Thinking sautéed shallot, sauteed garlic, lemon zest and a pat of butter in the bag. Also, the zip loc bag instead of vac seal?

    Terry, No GA this year but maybe Eggtoberfest

    Caz, Thanks and that is a great way to do them.

    Man, that sounds great! I want to try that. I definitely need to sous vide more!

    either zip lock or stop the vac as soon as it starts to hit the fish. Ours you can just hit "seal only" at any time and it stops the vac and starts the seal.

    Thanks again. If I sauté the garlic and shallots you think they won't be overpowering?

    I am a big believer in letting the fish speak for itself. None of that added spices. Just a nice lemon olive oil mix and grill.
