Spiced Halibut with Malaysian Potato and Pea Broth

Malaysian vibe potato & pea broth with spiced pan fried Halibut fillet. Such an indulgent dish but this is still very simple and most of the dish can be prepped in advance. Marinate the fish and make the broth adding the potatoes then take off the heat. 15 minutes before you’re ready to eat bring the broth to a simmer and cook your Halibut fillets. Check your potatoes are soft then add the peas at the very end.⠀
