    Pan Seared Halibut with Citrus Vinaigrette

    Serves 4

     
    This halibut recipe is light yet satisfying with a yummy citrus kick!

     

    What You’ll Need:

    A Grapefruit Knife

    Measuring Cups

    Measuring spoons

    Kitchen Knife

    Two Small Bowls

     

    Ingredients:

    4  6 Ounce halibut fillet

    4 small or 2 large grapefruit (flesh and juice separated)

    3 Tablespoons orange juice concentrate

    2 Tablespoons lemon juice

    2 Tablespoons  Dijon  mustard

    ½ Cup olive oil

    ½ Cup chicken or vegetable broth

    2-3 Tablespoons fresh tarragon, chopped

     

    How To Put It Together:

    1) Cut the grapefruit in half. Set up two bowls, one for the grapefruit flesh and one for the juice. Working over your juice bowl and using a grapefruit knife, carefully remove the grapefruit flesh, catching the excess juices in the bow. Place the grapefruit flesh in your flesh bowl and squeeze the grapefruit halves over your juice bowl to get every last drop of juice out of the grapefruit.
     
    2) To the juice bowl, add the orange juice concentrate, lemon juice and Dijon mustard; whisk the mixture briskly. While whisking, slowly pour the olive oil into the mixture a little at a time; add the broth and tarragon and whisk until emulsified. This vinaigrette can be served cold over salads or warm over fish or chicken. If you are serving it cold, then now would be the time to fold in the grapefruit pieces.  If you are serving warm, the pour the vinaigrette into a small pot and warm the mixture slowly over low heat until heated through, then carefully add the grapefruit pieces.
