Ingredients

  • 1 cup red wine vinegar
  • cup cane sugar
  • 1 2-inch cinnamon stick
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • ½ cup sliced red onion
  • 4 6 to 8 ounce Alaska Halibut fillets, fresh or thawed
  • 1 ½ tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup microgreen herbs

Instructions

  • Step 1: Pickle blueberries
    Stir together 1/3 cup water, vinegar, sugar, cinnamon, 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer stirring until sugar and salt are dissolved. Remove from heat and stir in blueberries and onion. Let stand until completely cooled, about 2 hours. If desired, cover and chill until ready to use, up to 1 week.
  • Step 2: Prepare halibut
    Pat the halibut fillets dry with clean paper towels. Sprinkle fillets evenly with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Heat a large heavy skillet over medium heat until hot; add oil swirling to coat. Add fillets and cook until golden brown on one side, about 3 to 4 minutes. Turn fillets over and cook until golden and just cooked through, about 3 minutes.
  • Step 3: To serve
    Arrange fillets on a serving dish. Using a slotted spoon, top fillets with desired amount of blueberry mixture. Sprinkle with microgreens. Serve immediately.
