Halibut Enchiladas Salsa Verde

halibut recipe

We often eat our Halibut cooked scrumptiously on the side by itself, but this recipe is a great reminder that we can put it in other dishes-- who would have thunk it!?  A great green recipe for Saint Patrick's Day or a great Mexican recipe for Cinco de May.
SERVES 4 (2 enchiladas each)  PREP TIME 20 minutes  COOK TIME 20 minutes


1/2 teaspoon each: garlic salt, lemon pepper seasoning and chipotle chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 lb. 4 oz. Alaska Halibut fillets
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 can (about 18 to 19 oz.) green salsa (enchilada or tomatillo)
1 can (2 oz.) diced green chiles (mild or hot, to taste)
8 (7 to 8-inch size) corn or flour tortillas
8 oz. shredded Pepper-Jack or Monterey Jack cheese
1 can (15 oz.)  seasoned black beans, drained
1/2 cup chopped cilantro


Blend garlic salt, lemon pepper, chipotle chili pepper and cumin.  Sprinkle on all sides of halibut to season.  Cook Alaska halibut in olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat, just until fish is opaque throughout.  Cool slightly; then break halibut into chunks.

Preheat oven to 400oF (or 375oF if using a glass baking dish).  Pour and spread 3/4 cup of the green sauce on bottom of a 9x13-inch pan.  Heat a large saucepan to medium-high; pour in remaining green sauce and chiles.  Cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes, until hot.  One by one, dip the tortillas in the sauce, place on plate, fill with about 1/8th of halibut chunks and  about 1/4 cup of beans.  Sprinkle on 1 tablespoon cheese; roll up.  Place enchiladas snugly next to each other in the baking dish.  Pour the remaining sauce over the enchiladas; sprinkle with remaining cheese. 

Bake 15 to 20 minutes, until sauce is bubbling and enchiladas are heated through.  Sprinkle on cilantro when serving.
