Halibut success!



Recommended Posts

I am a confirmed fish hater but cooked and ate halibut today. It was delicious. I used foil, put down 2 slices of lemon, the piece of fish, a teaspoon of butter and a teaspoon of capers. Sealed leaving a small open space at the top. Then grilled on medium for 5 minutes, opened the foil all the way and cooked another 3 minutes. We got the frozen halibut at costco last week.

I was able to eat 1.5 ounces. 1 ounce or less of chicken made me barf. I'm thrilled I found something that goes down easy and stays down.

The fish needs to be defrosted before cooking. My friend who loves fish told me how to cook this. It was a real winner here. My husband said it was the best meal he has had in a long time.

The lemons keep the fish off the foil so it doesn't stick or burn and the flavor it gives the fish is amazing. The capers were that little bit of something extra that made it even better. Also a sprinkle of salt & pepper.

I see you were sleeved the same time as me. How are you doing with real food?

Yum I'm going to try that too I shop at costco. I find fish such as Halibut goes down so much easier than chicken or beef. I also love to boil shrimp and have it with lemon and shrmp cocktail sauce. Fish is high in Protein too. Happy it went well with you.

I love shrimp. One reason I didn't get the band was that I had read you could not have shrimp. Not sure its true but it was enough to push me over to the sleeve. I don't eat it often but do enjoy it.

Hi FireFly - I am doing ok with real food. Have had a few episodes so I backed off a little because it scared me. Bad pain in my chest and the food came back up. This weekend was a little better but I am eating very little. I guess I would have just 2 bites and be sucessful with the food than have a struggle every time I try. I just have to keep on trying! Thanks for asking :001_smile:

This is why I tried the halibut. Several people on here suggested fish goes down easier. Easy does it for us. I'm happy with what I am doing at the moment. I'm satisfied with the small amounts of food.< /p>
