- For the Halibut:
- 1 ½ lb halibut fillet, cut into equal 4 pieces
- ½ C toasted sesame seeds
- ½ tsp kosher salt flakes
- 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- ½ C pickled ginger
- For the Mayonnaise:
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- ¼ C tahini paste
- 1 Tbsp soya sauce
- 1 ½ C vegetable oil
- Mix sesame seeds with the kosher salt and crush using a mortar and pestle. You can also use a spice grinder but be careful not to over-process. You want the end result to be lightly crushed seeds not powder.
- Blend the vegetable oil with the sesame oil and brush onto all surfaces of the fish steaks (or filets).
- Coat the fish pieces with the seasoned sesame seeds patting them into the surface of the fish.
- Place the sesame coated halibut onto the lower rack of the Memphis Pellet Grill and close the lid. Set the temperature to 225 F and smoke the fish for 2 – 2 ½ hours until the internal temperature of the fish reaches 145 F.
- To make the tahini mayonnaise mix together the first 4 ingredients in a blender. Turn the speed to high and very slowly add the oil in a steady stream. The dressing will emulsify as you drizzle in the oil, becoming a thick and creamy mayonnaise.
- Serve the smoked sesame crusted halibut with the tahini mayo and some pickled ginger on the side.
