In this delicious and simple pasta recipe, halibut is “cooked” ceviche-style in a zesty lemon marinade then tossed with warm spaghetti. While the fish marinates, throw together a salad for an easy and healthy dinner.

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine halibut, lemon juice, oil, onion, parsley and crushed red pepper in a large bowl. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and mix well. Let stand at room temperature, stirring occasionally, until the fish is opaque throughout, at least 1 hour and up to 2 hours.

  • Place potato in a large saucepan, cover with cold water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook until very tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove the potato; peel when it's cool enough to handle. Keep the potato-cooking water and add enough water to the pot to make about 2 quarts total for cooking the pasta.

  • When the fish is done marinating, return the water to a boil. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon salt, then stir in pasta until all the strands are submerged. Cook according to package instructions until just tender.

  • Meanwhile, mash the potato through a ricer or with a fork. Add to the bowl with the fish and stir until well combined.

  • When the pasta is done, drain well and toss with the fish mixture. Serve at once.

Gummy Pasta This dish was not a success in my kitchen. As individual ingredients fish ceviche and simple spaghetti the items would be have been better. When combined the riced potato stuck to the pasta similar to a glue. In the photo it also looks as though there were more red pepper flakes added -- which would be good since it needed a touch more of flavor. I would also suggest garnishing each plate with more lemon and parsley. Pros: Fresh easy recipe Cons: Potato made pasta gooey. Fish needed more than an hour to marinate. Read More
