Total Time: 20 min.

Coconut milk is cooked in the same pan as the fish to create a lightly rich sauce that brings fish, rice, and relish together in a coherent dish.


  • 1 cup chopped raspberries
  • 1 cup peeled, seeded, and chopped papaya
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped red onion
  • 2 tsp. fresh lime juice
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1½ lb. fresh halibut, skin trimmed, cut into 4 pieces
  • 4 tsp. Curry powder
  • 2-3 tsp. canola oil
  • 1 (13½ oz.) can lite coconut milk
  • 6 cups cooked basmati rice

    Optional Garnishes*:

    • Cilantro Leaves


  1. Put an oven-safe skillet in oven and preheat oven to 500ºF.
  2. To make relish, toss raspberries, papaya, cilantro, onion, lime juice and olive oil together. Meanwhile, bring fish to room temperature.
  3. Generously season fish with curry powder. Heat canola oil in a saute pan over medium-high heat. Sear fish on both sides until golden brown (about 45 seconds per side).
  4. Transfer fish to hot skillet in the oven and roast until fish is barely cooked through (6 minutes). Flesh will feel firm and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of each piece should read 135ºF. Fish will continue to cook when it comes out of the oven. Transfer to a warm platter and cover.
  5. Pour coconut milk into hot skillet over medium-low heat. Gently scrape bottom of the pan to release caramelized bits as milk heats.
  6. Divide rice among 4 bowls. Lay fish on top and ladle coconut milk over all. Put relish on top of fish and sprinkle more cilantro leaves over all, if desired.
