Chourico & Corn Relish
  • 8 oz. dry cured chourico, casing removed, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled & minced
  • 1 big ear of corn, niblets removed from husk
  • 1 shallot, sliced thinly
  • ½ c. low-sodium chicken, beef or vegetable both (whatever you have) *
  • 4 Tb. unsalted butter
  • Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Handful fresh basil, thinly sliced
  • Handful fresh parsley, minced
  • 1 lb. Halibut, skin on OR removed (depending on preference), cut into 4 portions
  • 2 Tb. olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Fresh lemon wedges
  • Fresh basil or chives (for garnish)
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place the chourico in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Allow to cook and release its juices and oils and break down (about 5-7 mins.).
  3. Add garlic, corn, shallot and cook on medium/low for about 8-10 minutes.
  4. Add broth and cook another 5 minutes.
  5. Add butter, basil, parsley, salt & pepper (to taste). Turn off heat and set aside until fish is cooked.
  6. Pat fish pieces dry with paper towel. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
  7. Heat non-stick/oven proof skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil.
  8. Place fish in pan, non-skin side down (if retaining skin). Flip fish after 3-4 minutes. Allow to cook on stovetop for about 5 minutes, then pop the pan into the oven. Allow fish to cook another 5-7 minutes then remove from oven.
  9. Plate the fish, along with chourico/corn relish. Garnish with lemon and herbs.
* Add a bit more broth if the mixture seems a little "dry" - the more moisture the better with this dense fish.
