We’re exploring the many ways to prepare one of summer’s most underestimated fruits: Watermelon. We’ve partnered with Sara Forte of Sprouted Kitchen for fresh recipes ideas and cooking tips.
Many people don’t know that fish have seasons, just like vegetables and some animals. This is especially true for wild fish (as opposed to farmed fish). The best time for halibut and salmon are the late spring and summer months. When buying fresh fish, look for fish that’s been packaged the same day or the day before. To make sure you’re getting the freshest fish possible, ask the manager of the seafood department to find out when they get their shipments, and time your trip to the store for that day.
There are of course, plenty of ways to prepare your fish. Grilling it will give you a smoky, tender fish. With a fish like halibut, you can roast it at a high heat very quickly and still keep a great texture.
In this recipe, well-seasoned, savory roasted halibut is balanced with sweet watermelon and tomato salsa. Taco seasoning gives the soft-flavored fish a bit of punch. Round out the dish with a starch like rice mixed with black beans.
