  • 2 cups of masa flour
  • ¼ cup cornmeal
  • 1 ¾ cup water
  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • ½ sweet onion
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 1 poblano peppers
  • 1/4 pound of shiitake mushrooms


  • 2 large halibut fillets
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Topping Sauce:

  • One small tomato
  • 1/2 bundle of fresh dill
  • 1 cup of plain whole milk yogurt
  • ½ lemon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Dash of pepper


  1. Chop three cloves of garlic, heat up a medium skillet and add three tablespoons of olive oil

  2. Prepare the masa dough for vegetable flatbread. Add the masa, spices and water to a large mixing bowl. Press the dough into the skillet

  3. Pop the flatbread into the oven and set the timer for 20 minutes.

  4. Prepare the veggies for topping

  5. When the whole flatbread is liberally covered in veggies salt the top lightly, and pop it back in the oven for another 15 minutes. Add 3 minutes under the broiler at the end to brown up the veggies on top. 

  6. While your flatbread is baking to fresh perfection prepare the halibut fillets for searing. Dry them off with a paper towel, and then lightly salt and pepper them on both sides. 

  7. Grab the medium skillet you sauteed the garlic oil in, and give it a quick wipe down with a paper towel. Add a tablespoon of butter and set the skillet over medium heat.

    When the butter is hot and bubbly, add the fillets. Let the fillets sit for about two minutes on each side depending on their size. 

  8. Create the dill topping sauce

  9. Serve and enjoy
