The only part of this simple supper that requires any effort is the rémoulade sauce—and that just calls for a little chopping and stirring. Dried tarragon works surprisingly well here, but use fresh if you have it on hand.
The capers, mustard and orange juice will go very well with a light, lively white wine with plenty of acidity. Try a pinot grigio from Italy, preferably from the Alto Adige region.
- 3/4 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 4 teaspoons fresh orange juice
- 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon, or 3/4 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon
- 2 teaspoons drained capers, chopped
- 2 dilled gherkins, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
- Fresh-ground black pepper
- 4 halibut steaks, about 1 inch thick (about 2 pounds in all)
- 1 tablespoon cooking oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
In a small glass or stainless-steel bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, mustard, orange juice, tarragon, capers, gherkins, anchovy paste, parsley and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
Light the grill or heat the broiler. Coat the halibut with the oil and season with the salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Grill or broil the fish for 3 minutes. Turn and cook until just done, about 4 minutes longer. Serve the fish with the orange rémoulade.
Serve grilled or broiled salmon steaks, salmon fillets, or skewered sea scallops with the rémoulade in place of the halibut.
