Michael in Santa Ana, in California had the following request:
Many Thanks in Advance
I tried to look for a procedure on how to smoke halibut or Greenland halibut. I found that a Norwegian, Kjell Gilje has a description in Norwegian on how he prepare and smoke different kinds of fish including halibut. A rather bad English translation (google) may give you some information.
I suppose it would be a good idea to contact him directly on e-mail to get further information. His e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Smoked halibut is a delicacy, and I have had the pleasure to enjoy thinly sliced halibut on a few hotel buffets. They have served the halibut cold with scrambled eggs or a cold potato salad.
On www.matoppskrift.no, they recommend that smoked halibut is cut into one inch slices and boiled very gently for 7 minutes. In fact the water should not bubble merely be just at boiling point. The fish sould be served with boiled potatoes and fish stock thickened with a little cornflour and plenty of parsley.
You will find a recipe on Norwegian cucumber salad here.
I hope this has been at some help for you!
