    Good Morning!!!! icon_biggrin.gif Can anyone clue me in as to what fish I could substitute for halibut in my Cipiano? Last year I tried Swordfish but even tho it was only 5 oz., it was strong and took over the delicacy of the other flavours. Much appreciated.Thanks, Addison. P.S. I'm a terrible speller any more so if I spelled everything wrong, forgive please!!! icon_redface.gif

    Cioppino - you can look at recipes posted here for other ideas, but I think any mild white fish would work - monkfish, cod, tilapia , basia.

    thanks for replying. I was kind of thinking maybe Monkfish too, if I can find any. Never had Basia, maybe I should find out more about it. thanks again icon_smile.gif

    I was remembering an old Julia Child show where she pulled out an ugly monkfish to make boullabaise.

    You want a firm fish. Monkfish, also known as 'Poor Mans Lobster' is a good choice. It is very firm, but also delicate in flavor.

    Tilapia is ok, but a bit muddier. I would stick with cod, monkfish, even grouper

    icon_smile.gif I wound up using a piece of grouper. Pretty good altho I admit the monkfish would have worked better. Thanks for the tip. Happy Holidays, Addie

    Just glad it worked out. You sometimes just have to use what is in season; also, what is affordable too. I do the same; I fish often, so I get snapper, grouper, flounder, trout, and pompano, mackerel too; but you have to use what is available at the time.

    Glad it came out well. Those type of dishes are nice in that you can really be flexible and use your favorite fish.
