I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Pepper Halibut with Salsa Cream
...in your mind.

Pepper Halibut with Salsa Cream

Serves 6 - I know - it sounds fancy and I’m not fancy. So who cares, just make it and impress your friends. But heed my warning - if you use red salsa instead of green - this will become one of the most horrifyingly ugly dishes you’ve ever made - so don’t.


  • 1 red pepper, finely diced
  • 1 yellow pepper, finely diced
  • 1 Anaheim chili pepper, finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 pounds Halibut
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup salsa verde (green salsa)
  • 1 teaspoon each cumin, cayenne and chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped


  1. Heat a non-stick pan to medium high, add olive oil, peppers and garlic and cook until just softened and just beginning to brown, about 5 minutes and set aside
  2. While that’s cooking, heat broiler
  3. Combine cumin, chili powder and cayenne - and sprinkle over halibut
  4. Broil halibut until done – about 5-7 minutes depending on thickness
  5. While halibut and peppers cook, combine sour cream and salsa in a little pot and simmer until heated through
  6. Plate it by putting some pepper mixture on plate, then halibut on top and spoon some of the salsa cream over the top
  7. Garnish with a little cilantro
