Autumn is the season of plenty. Wild berries have been picked, fish have been caught, gardens and orchards are spilling over with the bounty of the season; not to mention that the fall hunting season has opened up across the province, paving the way for harvests of venison, game birds, bear, sheep and the like.
The fruitfulness of the season is something to be celebrated – and these halibut harvest tacos do just that. Fresh-caught, pan-seared wild pacific halibut lays atop a base of fresh slaw and is covered with fresh Okanagan peach salsa.

To Make Halibut Harvest Tacos
Season the halibut with salt and pepper. With a little butter, sear a fillet of halibut over medium heat in a cast iron pan (alternatively, if you have a thicker fillet, bake in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit) until flaky and cooked thoroughly.
To serve, place a tortilla on a plate, add a dollop of sour cream if desired, then the fresh harvest slaw. Place halibut on top of the slaw, and top with fresh peach salsa. Enjoy!
