1/2 cup white wine
1. combine the cilantro, lime juice, 1/3 cup olive oil, onion, garlic, chili, garlic powder, cumin and paprika together in a blender with a large pinch of salt and puree until thoroughly combined and smooth. set the mixture aside.
2. heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high heat in a large pot and add the halibut. cook, stirring now and then, until golden brown, about 8 minutes. add the white wine and cook until nearly evaporated, about 2 minutes. pour over the reserved cilantro mixture, stir gently just to combine and cook for just another minute to let all the flavors say hello.
3. serve immediately with deep-fried flour tortillas, crema fresca, cotija cheese, and a fresh pico de gallo with chunks of avocado (mix equal parts diced tomatoes and avocado and then season with salt, pepper, fresh cilantro, lime and diced red onion).
