Halibut with Lentils & Fennel
march 13, 2014
The Eatwell Farm newsletter from last week mentioned a similar dish, Celeriac and Lentils, which reminded me of this recipe from Canal House Cooking Volume 4, p 78. It was surprisingly delicious last time, so I'm glad a fennel bulb arrived with today's CSA box. They're always available from the grocery, but I hate to buy additional produce when we get so much from the farm. I'll throw in the celery root, too.
--- After dinner follow up:
This would have been good, if both the lentils and halibut hadn't been overcooked. The kids ate some of it anyway, but that's only because dinner was late and they were hungry. Next time I'll not walk away from the stove while the halibut is poaching. I know better, but sometimes just can't resist temptation.
The celeriac was mushy, so in the future it will either be left out or cooked separately and added at the end.
