I made it for company. Easy and very tasty.
Delicious! Somewhat of a surprise, as I was not sure how the citrus would react with the Halibut. Try it with a wild rice recipe or rice pilaf.
Love the citrus with the fish! I got raves from my family on this one! I used haddock instead of the halibut and got great results. Any white fish would be fine to use with this recipe!
