halibutAlaskan Blackened Halibut with Garlic Mashed Potatoes – A Perfect Combo

NW Boaters, we are all… so very over this rain in the PNW this winter and spring. Enjoy this: Alaskan Blackened Halibut with Garlic Mashed Potatoes. This recipe combines delicious Wild Alaska Halibut with creamy garlic mashed potatoes, and everything is prepared in a simple, healthy fashion. Once you have sprinkled the spices on, press them in as you will lose some of the spices when you cook it. Be sure to keep your kitchen well-ventilated during the blackening process, as otherwise you might find yourself choking on smoke. You can also grill the halibut if you prefer, but keep in mind that the Alaska Halibut cooks very quickly!
