Tuesday, April 28th - Chipotle Basted Halibut Steak with Celery and Blue Cheese Salad

Dinner was a very typical spring/summer fare for us. Yams. MMMMM I lurve my yams. The most nutritious food next to the red pepper.
First up was a SUPER simple:
Celery and Blue cheese
1/2 bunch of celery, thinly sliced on a bias (angle)
1/2 c crumbled good blue cheese
1-2 T good olive oil
salt and fresh cracked black pepper
Toss all of the above. Salt to taste. That easy and that tasty.
Chipotle Halibut BBQ'd
Rub your favourite rub or baste on your halibut steaks. We used a baste seen above. Quite tasty. I think I prefer bastes to rubs, personally. Nice kick to it and you get to serve it at the table as well. Let them sit for about 20 - 30 minutes before grilling
4-5 minutes a side and feel free to rebaste after the first turn.
BBQ'd Yams
Par- cook the yams in the microwave for 4 min/piece or steam for 10-15.
Put them on the BBQ as you're heating it up. You'll need about 20 minutes. Fork tender. ie. you can jab it and it doesn't feel like an apple.
Serve with low fat sour cream and chives.

Dona Paula Los Cardos Chardonnay.
Lovely sunny day meal.
