Halibut with Spicy Mint-Cilantro Chutney

This is a nice light dish that's full of flavor and takes minutes to make. It's great with basmati rice and peas.

1 serrano pepper, halved (jalapeno would work too)
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup Greek plain yogurt
4. teaspoons of cream cheese
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp minced ginger
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp cumin
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 TB chopped fresh mint
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp salt
4 halibut filets
1 TB butter
1TB canola oil

1. Remove seeds from half of the pepper and leave the seeds in the other half. Place both halves in a food processor and mince. Add cilantro and next 9 ingredients (through garlic) and process until smooth. Stir in mint.

2. Heat a large pan to medium high heat. Combine garam masala and 1/4 tsp salt. Sprinkle evenly over fish.

3. Add oil and butter to pan and melt. Add fish to pan and cook 3 minutes per side or until done. Serve with chutney.
