Recipe by RedVinoGirl

This is great served over rice or couscous. The flavors in the ingredients compliment the halibut beautifully. I have used this with many mild white fishes and found they all are great with these ingredients.

This recipe is something that I would expect from a high end restaurant....and paying a high end price!!! Wonderful flavor, with the olives and capers. If your are going to dress up Halibut, do use this recipe! Excellent!!!
