Grilled Halibut With Creamy Guacamole Sauce

Type: Fish
Courses: Sauces
Serves: 2 people

Recipe Ingredients

1   Haas avocado
  Fresh lemon juice for rubbing the avocado
2 teaspoons 10mlFresh lime juice plus 2 lime slices - halved, for garnish
2 tablespoons 30mlWater plus - if desired, additional to thin the sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons 22mlScallion - finely chopped
1/8 teaspoon 0.6mlGround cumin
1   Cayenne or to taste
2 tablespoons 30mlSour cream
2   Halibut steaks
  Olive oil for brushing the fish
  Finely chopped seeded tomato for garnish

Recipe Instructions

Season the halibut steaks with salt and black pepper.

Halve the avocado and reserve one half, rubbed with the lemon juice.

In a blender puree the remaining avocado half, peeled, the lime juice, 2 tablespoons of the water, the scallion, the cumin, the cayenne, the sour cream, and salt and pepper to taste, scraping down the sides of the blender, until the sauce is smooth.

Transfer the sauce to a small bowl and stir in enough additional water to thin the sauce to the desired consistency.

Grill the halibut, brushed generously on both sides with the oil, in an oiled ridged grill pan or on an oiled rack set about 6 inches over glowing coals for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until it just flakes.

Arrange the steaks on 2 plates, nap them with the sauce, and garnish each serving with the reserved avocado, peeled and sliced thin, fanning the slices, and the lime slices.

Sprinkle the plates with the tomato.
