“I decided to try a sort of hot bacon and bean relish by slicing beans thin and cooking them raw in hot bacon fat. I used a little lemon loved how this came out with the seared halibut.” - by Chef John
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Season halibut steaks generously with salt and black pepper. Refrigerate until needed.
- Place bacon in a skillet and cook over medium heat. When bacon is about half cooked, 4 to 6 minutes, stir in beans and pinch of salt. Cook, stirring, until bacon is crisp and beans are almost tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer bacon and beans to a bowl and return skillet with bacon drippings to the stove over medium-high heat.
- When bacon drippings just begin to smoke, place 2 halibut steaks in the skillet; cook until browned and meat is just starting to pull away from the bone, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer steaks to a plate and repeat for remaining 2 steaks.
- Remove skillet from heat and pour in water; bring to a boil while scraping any browned bits off the bottom of the pan. Return beans and bacon to the skillet and stir in lemon juice; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon hot bean and bacon relish over halibut steaks and serve.

Will make this again!"
"Fabulous recipe! I am not much of a lover of fish because it is always too dry for me. I especially found that adding a cover to the saute and again to the fish, I was able to control the cooking. I..." See more added garlic in the saute since we grow the stuff and I love it. Forgot the pinch of salt and added it later but it did not seem to matter much since I salted and peppered the halibut beforehand (this step I believe is key). I also did not believe I had enough bacon oil when I went to pan fry the fish so I added a bit of grapeseed oil to the pan. The fish was the best I've had. I would definitely make this again. Watch the video before cooking the f"
"Fabulous, very easy recipe. We did not have the beans, so I used brussels sprouts instead, which I would recommend. I halved the sprouts and then seared them in a pan while cooking the bacon. Other..." See more than that, I followed the recipe as designed. Definitely easy and awesome!"
