A friend recently shared his prime catch of halibut with us and were we ever so glad that he did. 
Halibut is a beautiful white meat fish with a delicious mild flavor. They can weigh as high as 600 pounds and one fillet can be as large as your front door. When purchasing halibut look for smaller cuts of the fish which have the best taste.
To prepare the tacos I fried the fish in a pan of oil after I had coated the fillets in a bowl of flour seasoned with salt and pepper. I then took a fork and flaked the halibut in to bite-sized pieces. Next, I sprayed a baking sheet with cooking spray and then placed 6 small flour tortillas over the pan, slightly overlapping them. Then I took a bottle of 'Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce' and squeezed a fine stream of it over all of the tortillas. The flaked fish got sprinkled over next and then dollops of 'Desert Pepper Trading Company' brand all natural corn, black bean and red pepper salsa (medium strength). My homemade tartar sauce went on next, followed by shredded Monterrey Jack cheese and shredded cheddar cheese.
I set the oven to broil then slid the sheet of tortillas underneath it and, watching it carefully, I proceeded to let them broil for about 5 minutes until the cheese was melted and the edges of the tortillas had browned. Our friends and neighbors helped us to polish them off in record time. All I really did was open up my refrigerator and just went by my best proverb~USE WHAT YOU GOT! Be sure and try this recipe, my husband told me he thought it was one of the best things that I had ever cooked to eat. Myself and my friends tended to agree with him.
