RECIPE: Guinness-Glazed Alaskan Halibut

  • By Melissa Clark for Food & Wine

    Serves: 4

    Ingredients:

    • Two 12-ounce bottles Guinness stout
    • 1/3 cup honey
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
    • Salt
    • Four 6-ounce skinless Alaskan halibut fillets
    • 4 large carrots, cut into 2-by-1/2-inch sticks
    • Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing
    • Freshly ground pepper

    Directions:

    1. In a skillet, bring the stout and honey to a boil. Simmer over moderate heat, skimming, until reduced to 1/2 cup, 25 minutes. Pour into a heatproof bowl and stir in the lemon juice, hot sauce and 1/2 teaspoon of salt; let cool to room temperature.
    2. In a shallow baking dish, pour half of the stout glaze over the halibut fillets and turn to coat thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate overnight, turning a few times. Reserve the remaining stout glaze.
    3. Preheat the broiler. Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Add the carrots and boil until just tender, about 4 minutes; drain. Pour the reserved stout glaze into the saucepan and boil over high heat until thickened and reduced to 1/3 cup, about 2 minutes. Add the carrots and simmer until glazed, about 1 minute.
    4. Remove the halibut from the marinade and arrange the fillets on a rimmed baking sheet. Brush the halibut with olive oil and season with pepper. Broil about 4 inches from the heat until richly browned and just cooked through, about 4 minutes. Transfer the halibut to plates and serve with the Guinness-glazed carrots.
