Hemp Seed, Dry Vermouth, Garlic Aioli Sauce

Directions:

Make sure halibut is well chilled.
Season halibut with salt. Put Garlic Aioli sauce over top and layer the pesto sauce over Aioli.
Top with hemp seed.
Place in fridge for 15 minutes to infuse flavors. (This can be done in morning and cooked when ready).
Place under broiler for 15 minutes, then add vermouth and let top brown for 5 minutes longer.

This pairs nicely with our Garlic Mashed Cauliflower.  Using cauliflower instead of potatoes is a nice replacement for a low carb lifestyle.

According to Shape Magazine, hemp seeds give you the complete nutritional power of hemp with their blend of omega-3 and omega-6 fats, high fiber content, and quality amino acid profile. Hemp seeds are also high in magnesium, a mineral that helps with relaxation, blood sugar control, blood pressure, and potentially osteoporosis, and that is generally low in women. Three tablespoons of hulled hemp seeds gives you 10 grams (g) of protein, 14g fat (mostly coming from omega-3 and omega-6 fats), and 2g fiber.
Best uses: Hemp seeds are very versatile and can be sprinkled on salad, mixed in with yogurt, or added to a smoothie.
