Halibut Veracruz Recipe

Halibut Veracruz
Servings: 6

Rick Bayless of Frontera Grill in Chicago distills Mexican seafood into three basic preparations: lime-cured (seviche), fried with garlic (al mojo de ajo), and served with chunky tomato sauce (a la Veracruzana). Named for the city of Veracruz, pescado a la Veracruzana is widely served throughout Mexico. This simple, light version skips the usual bay leaf and heavy stewing, allowing the delicate halibut to shine.Seafood makes a great base for a delicious Mexican feast. Just add the heat, the spice is right! Text and recipes by Kathryn Jessup From the November 2008 Issue of Coastal Living. Adapted from Dona Tomas (Ten Speed, 2006).
