From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes about 15 minutes.
Lay out four 12-by-12-inch sheets of aluminum foil.
Place 1 large grape leaf in the center of each piece of foil and top each with 1 halibut fillet. Arrange some of the ginger, onion, and chilies on top of each fillet. Season with salt. Spoon 3 tablespoons of coconut milk over each fillet, then wrap with the grape leaf.
Place another grape leaf on top, tucking in the sides, to form a packet around the fish. Wrap loosely with the foil and seal.
Bake for 15 minutes (If starting with raw fish, bake for 20 to 25 minutes).
Meanwhile, cook the rice according to the package directions.
Remove the fish packets from the foil and serve with the rice and Green Bean and Cucumber Salad.
Recommended wine: Pinot Grigio, Gruener Veltliner, Pinot Noir
Pinot Grigio, Gruener Veltliner, and Pinot Noir are my top picks for Halibut. Fish is as diverse as wine, so it's hard to pick wines that go with every fish. A crisp white wine, such as a pinot grigio or Grüner Veltliner, will suit any delicately flavored white fish. Meaty, strongly flavored fish such as salmon and tuna can even handle a light red wine, such as a pinot noir. The Santi Sortesele Pinot Grigio with a 4.4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 17 dollars per bottle.
Santi Sortesele Pinot GrigioStraw yellow hue, accompanied by a close-focused nose of pear, apricot and white flowers. The fruity palate, with top notes of stone fruit, shows ripeness and roundness well supported by an elegant acidity and savoriness, ensuring a long, lingering finish.
