Tasty Thursdays: Spicy Halibut Squash Stew

Another new recipe! And it was yummy! Speaking of yummy... the other day I had a coworker (hi Patrick) ask me, "Does Anthony mind eating all that healthy stuff?"
WTH does that mean?!
I told Patrick I can't stand it when people think healthy food = crappy tasting food. HELLO! I wouldn't eat it if it didn't taste good... if that was the case I wouldn't have gotten fat in the first place, right?!

Anyway, this recipe was super tasty and really quick to make but the only mistake I made was cutting the seeds out of the jalapeno because there wasn't any spice to the dish! This is the first time I've ever cooked with jalapeno (and halibut!) so I didn't realize all the heat was in the seeds. We just threw on some red pepper flakes to make up for it.

(makes about 5 servings)
  • 1 lbs. halibut, cubed into 1 inch pieces
  • 3 med. tomatoes, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 zucchinis, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8oz low-sodium tomato sauce
  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
1. After cutting the halibut and veggies, heat olive oil over medium heat and add onions and zucchinis. Cook till soft, about 6 minutes.

2. Add garlic, jalapeno, tomatoes, tomato sauce, salt and pepper and cook till fragrant.
About 3 minutes.

3. Add halibut chunks and cook until flesh flakes with a fork. About 10 minutes.

Wow, that looks delicious! I will try to make it sometime, but I am a really lousy cook! Lol.

Silly question -- but how do you create a nutrition label for your recipe?

I'm totally with you healthy does not mean bad tasting! It can be awesome! My coworkers are jealous of the yummy leftovers I bring in all the time. They are always surprised the nutritional stats!

That Patrick guy sounds like a really cool guy, haha! The food actually "looks" pretty good :)

All your dishes look great! I really want to try this Halibut dish out. I love fish.

Maybe you should open you own place up. I would definitely eat there.
