    Grilled Halibut with Turmeric, Garlic, and Olives


    • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
    • 2 Tbsp (30 mL) grapeseed oil
    • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
    • 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) grated fresh turmeric
    • 4 - 6 oz (170 g) skin-on halibut steaks
    • 2 Tbsp (30 mL) roughly chopped green olives
    • 1 lemon, zested and juiced



    In large bowl, stir together garlic, oil, salt, and turmeric. Add halibut and toss until well coated. Set aside at room temperature for 15 minutes.

    While halibut is marinating, preheat grill or a grill pan over medium heat.

    Remove fish from marinade and place on hot grill. Grill fish, flipping once halfway through cooking, until golden brown and just cooked through, about 10 to 15 minutes total, depending on the thickness of your halibut. Transfer to platter and set aside.

    In small bowl, with fork, mash olives with lemon juice and a good pinch of lemon zest. Spoon over warm fish and serve.

    Serves 4.

    Tip: This recipe works equally well using any firm-fleshed fish such as salmon, or you could even try it with chicken thighs.

    Smoky Lentil Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

    This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
