    Chef Kate's Note:

    From a recipe by Andreas Viestad, the effort and all the herbs are worth it. The result is a wonderful sauce that complements but doesn't overwhelm the fresh halibut taste. You can do the rub ahead of time (even the night before). You can also simplify and just use rosemary, parsley and bay leaves. Prep time does not include marinating time.

      Absolutely delicious fish preparation! I had already made halibut earlier in the week so I used two very large Lake Superior whitefish fillets and halved the rest of the ingredients. Love the combination of fresh herbs (and my hands smelled absolutely lovely after chopping all that greenery). The sauce of reduced pan liquid + herb butter is the best; I used the extra to drizzle on some new potatoes. What a dish! Thanks so much for posting this recipe, Kate!
