- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon green curry paste
- 1 tablespoon freshly grated gingerroot
- 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon nam pla or bottled Thai fish sauce
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- 1-1/2 pounds Alaska Halibut steaks or fillets, skin and bones removed, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
- 12 fresh lemon grass stalks, about 1/4-inch in diameter and 6 inches long
If using the packaged lemon grass stalks available in the produce section of the grocery store, you can cut them lengthwise into 4 more slender stalks to use as skewers. Green curry paste, Thai fish sauce and toasted sesame oil are available in the Asian section of the store.
- In small bowl, thoroughly blend oil, curry paste, ginger, rice wine vinegar, fish sauce and sesame oil. Brush paste on Alaska Halibut pieces; cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.
- Preheat grill or broiler/oven to medium-high heat.
- Thread halibut onto lemon grass skewers, 2 to 3 pieces per skewer. Place skewers on well-oiled grill or spray-coated broiling pan.
- Grill or broil halibut 5 inches from heat source, 4 to 5 minutes per side, turning once during cooking. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
Fresh lemon grass skewers add a fragrant citrus note to halibut.
