  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 10 tablespoons water

    Cornmeal-Crusted Halibut Cheeks with Mama Lil’s Dipping Sauce

    Halibut Cheeks have a lot going for them. Besides being an incredibly easy way to make fish and chips (there’s no cutting or skinning involved), they have a great stranded texture—they’re the pulled pork of the sea.

  • Roasted Halibut with Shellfish Cioppino

    Roasted Halibut with Shellfish Cioppino

    Cioppino is a classic seafood stew whose origins can be traced to the Italian fishers of San Francisco. And unlike many fishermen’s stews that are thick and tomato-based, this one relies on fish stock (or clam broth) and just a hint of tomato, plus the unmistakable flavors of fennel and crushed red pepper flakes, to create a gently perfumed, aromatic broth with a bit of a kick. The final crowning touch is the addition of one of the Northwest’s iconic fish, fresh halibut, which perches atop the cioppino.
