    Grilled Halibut with Turmeric, Garlic, and Olives

    Ingredients

    • 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

    Directions

    01

    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.

    Beet Falafel Burgers with Dilly Tahini Sauce

    If a falafel and burger had a love child, this would be it. The result of this hybrid is a vibrantly coloured, complex-flavoured veggie burger you’ll flip over. You can also serve them between toasted hamburger buns with toppings such as sliced cucumber, sliced tomato, and arugula.  Holding it together Many plant-based burgers are crumbly and weak, risking a patty that ends up between the grill grates instead of intact on your plate. Keep your burgers together by forming patties no larger than 1 in (2.5 cm) thick, which ensures a nice, even crust on the outside and a thoroughly warmed-through centre, then chilling the patties before grilling. You can also consider using a burger mould, which gives you denser, equally sized patties that cook evenly. Be sure your grill grates are well greased.  Deep freeze You can freeze uncooked falafel burgers on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet or plate and then transfer frozen patties to an airtight container. When ready, just thaw and cook as instructed. Falafel cooking options To bake: Arrange falafel on parchment-lined baking sheet and brush lightly with oil; bake at 375 F (190 C) for 25 minutes, or until crispy on the outside and heated through. To pan fry: Heat large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add 1 Tbsp oil (15 mL) for each 2 burgers in the pan, swirl to coat pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until underside is browned. Then flip carefully and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more.
