I loved this! It was so simple to make, yet had really impressive flavor. Terrific choice of ingredients in the sauce. I used halibut fillets instead of steaks, so I cut back a couple minutes on the poaching time. I also did not use the anise flavored liquor, since it was optional. Thanks for a great dinner!
