Halibut with fresh polenta and pepper oil


This is one of the best and easiest recipes from Jacques Pepin's book "Fast Food My Way." Halibut is poached in salted water. Fresh corn is shaved off the cob, pureed, and cooked in butter until thick and creamy. Red bell pepper is pureed with olive oil and cooked in a MICROWAVE! And that is basically it! It looks gorgeous, and it tastes fabulous!

I can't decide, is it healthy or not? You poach the halibut, but you cook the corn in butter...hummm...

Pretty presentation, that's half the battle.
