Halibut baked in cream

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

This is so good! I usually halve this recipe when it's just my husband and me. I have also added fresh spinach leaves to the baking dish. I found this in an old Sunset cookbook.

add 1/2 lb. sliced mushrooms, 1/2 cup dry white wine, 1 bay leaf and 1 whole clove of garlic and it's like a recipe by Craig Clairbourne that I was going to post. His recipe doesn't have the tomato but it sounds great.
