Looking for the perfect lunch or dinnertime meal? Zesty halibut and green beans make the perfect recipe for a hearty and delicious dish!
The Perfect Pairing Of Protein And Pod
Considered to be a recipe of Alaskan and Canadian origin, halibut and green beans have been a staple dish in several countries throughout history.
Of course, each country has a different spin on the meal, and with traditional and family-specific preparations, it’s become a dish that has a wide variety of variations.
The two main parts of the dish are the fish and the veggies.
Halibut is the term for flatfish that are typically considered both sport fish and food fish. In addition to being served with green beans, these fish are typically boiled, deep-fried, or grilled fresh.
While this kind of fish can be found in both the Atlantic and Pacific regions, overfishing has pushed Atlantic halibut towards the endangered species list.
Green beans are the other portion of this popular dish. Also known as snap beans, snaps, or French beans, they’re actually the unripe fruit pods of common beans.
