admin's picture
  Water 8 Cup (128 tbs)
  Shallots 4 Medium, thinly sliced
  Garlic 6 Clove (30 gm), halved
  Thyme sprigs 12
  Whole black peppercorns 2 Tablespoon
  Kosher salt 2 Tablespoon
  Extra virgin olive oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Lemon 1 , halved
  Sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Rice vinegar 3 Tablespoon
  Green papaya 1 Pound, peeled seeded and julienned
  Ground black pepper To Taste
  Lime juice 1 Tablespoon
  Hass avocado 1 Large, mashed
  Skinless halibut fillets 24 Ounce

1. In a large saucepan, combine the water, shallots, garlic, thyme sprigs, whole peppercorns, kosher salt and olive oil. Squeeze the lemon halves over the saucepan and add the squeezed halves to the pan. Bring to a boil over high heat, then simmer over moderate heat for 30 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, in a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine the sugar and rice vinegar and microwave at high power for 1 minute; stir to dissolve the sugar. Add a pinch of crushed red pepper and the green papaya. Season with sea salt and black pepper and toss to coat.
3. In a small bowl, mash the lime juice into the avocado and season with sea salt and crushed red pepper.
4. Place the halibut in a deep, medium skillet, leaving some space between the fillets. Strain enough of the aromatic poaching liquid over the fish to just cover it. Simmer the halibut gently over very low heat just until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes.
5. Spoon the avocado mixture onto each of 4 plates and top with the fish. Using a slotted spoon, mound the papaya slaw on the halibut and serve right away.
