Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes

4 Alaska Halibut fillets (4 to 6 oz. each), fresh or thawed
Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
1 Tablespoon ground cumin, divided
1/3 cup olive oil
3 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
1-1/2 Tablespoons minced garlic
1 cup regular or low-fat mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons sweet pickle relish
1 Tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
4 sandwich rolls, split
1/2 cup roasted poblano chiles, peeled, seeded and chopped
8 tomato slices
1 cup cilantro leaves


Marinade: Season Alaska Halibut fillets with kosher salt, black pepper and 2 teaspoons cumin; place in 9x13-inch pan.  Whisk together oil, lime juice and garlic; pour mixture over halibut; turn halibut to coat all sides.  Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes before using.

Cumin Tartar Sauce: In small mixing bowl, blend mayonnaise, relish, mustard, one teaspoon cumin and black pepper.  Cover and refrigerate until serving.

Heat a ridged stovetop grill pan over medium-high heat.  Remove halibut fillets from marinade; place in heated pan and cook, uncovered, about 3 to 4 minutes, until browned.  Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.  Turn fillets over and cook just until fish is opaque throughout, about 4 minutes. 

Griddle (or toast in oven) cut side of rolls until golden.  Spread cut side of each roll bottom with two tablespoons of tartar sauce.  Layer with 2 tablespoons roasted chiles, a halibut portion, 2 tomato slices, and 1/4 cup cilantro leaves; cover with roll tops.

Cook's tip: Alaska Halibut fillets can also be broiled, grilled or baked.
