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 AppÃ©tit 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!
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!
