Halibut and fava beans.

Two foods I don’t eat nearly enough of.

While fava beans, obviously, are not in season for long, whenever I do eat halibut I always ask myself: why don’t I eat this lovely fish more often?

The opportunity arose to enjoy both of these lovely foods when I saw a recipe in the April 2009 issue of Bon Appétit for Halibut on Mashed Fava Beans with Mint.

While I miscalculated slightly when buying the fava (I didn’t buy quite as much as I needed), this was a tremendously delicious dish. The halibut was light and smooth and the spicy fava bean mash was the perfect accompaniment.

Today is Victoria Day in Canada so it’s a national holiday. I’m off to enjoy the enjoy the day but before I go, here are some more entries from other foodbloggesr who have tackled that magazine pile!

Wandering Coyote of ReTorte made Beginners’ Bread from an old issue of Canadian Living.

Janie of Panini Girl made Fava Bean and Arugula Crosini from Gourmet.

Remember, if you have a magazine recipe that you’ve meaning to try, send me the link to your post and I’ll include in my Magazine Mondays round-up!

Have a great week, everyone!

Ciao!
