Selecting the very best meal to serve as the main dish for a dinner party is frequently a predicament. Hosts and people hosting wish to make sure that they do not serve foods to which the visitors might have an allergy and when dealing with various cultures, they want to make certain the food is not offensive. For example, you would not serve pork at a meal where some of your guests practiced the Muslim faith. You would not serve roast beef or chicken if you know that some of your guests are vegetarian.
Fish is a meal that always goes over well at dinner parties. Attempt a fish meal that is not common, such as halibut. The supper party that earned me the best compliments was one at which I served a recipe called Snappy Halibut Skillet. In addition to being simple to prepare, it is rather tasty. There are lots of variations of this recipe, but the one that my family and visitors prefer is as follows. You will have to increase the dish for the needed variety of guests. This one is based on a dinner celebration for 10 people.
1 1/2 tsp. Thyme
2 1/2 pound halibut (enabling 1/2 pound. per serving).
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil.
1 onion sliced in small pieces.
1 clove garlic, minced.
1 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch.
1 can stewed tomatoes.
1/2 cup green onions.
Sprinkle thyme on both sides of each halibut fillet and cook over medium heat in hot oil. Evaluate the fish to see if it flakes easily with a fork. This will tell you that it is fried. Eliminate the fish to a warming plate.
Using the very same frying pan, prepare the garlic and onion up until they are tender. Return the fish to the skillet and let it heat through with the sauce.
