    Directions:

    1. 1
      Make Beurre blanc:.
    2. 2
      Finely grate 1 tsp zest from a grapefruit. Squeeze 1/2 cup juice from a white grapefruit.
    3. 3
      Cut peel, including all white pith, from remaining fruit with a sharp paring knife and cut segments free from membranes. Chop enough grapefruit segments (use all colors) to measure 1/2 cup. Reserve 1 cup of remaining whole segments.
    4. 4
      Boil juice, wine, shallot, and vinegar in a small heavy saucepan until reduced to about 1 Tbl. Reduce heat to low and whisk in butter 1 piece at a time, lifting pan from heat occasionally to cool sauce and adding each new piece of butter before previous one has melted completely (sauce must not get hot enough to separate).
    5. 5
      Stir in chopped grapefruit and season with salt and pepper. Keep beurre blanc warm in a metal bowl set over a saucepan of hot water.
    6. 6
      Cook fish and vegetables:.
    7. 7
      Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Pat halibut dry and season with salt and pepper. Heat 1 1/2 Tbl oil in a large nonstick skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then saute fish, in batches, if necessary, turning over once, until golden brown and just cooked through, about 5 minutes total. Transfer fish to a shallow baking pan and keep warm in oven.
    8. 8
      Wipe skillet clean and heat remaining 1 1/2 Tbl oil over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then saute mushrooms with salt and pepper to taste, stirring, until golden brown, 5 - 7 minutes. Add endives and saute, stirring, until leaves are slightly wilted, about 1 minute. Stir in reserved whole grapefruit segments and remove from heat.
    9. 9
      Serve fish over mushrooms, topped with beurre blanc and zest.

      Made this as a result of being given a bunch of grapefruit from a neighbor's tree. The fish & sauce combo was very tasty. We thought the grapefruit chunks in the vegetables added a bit too much grapefruit to the meal; so next time I'll reduce the amount (or eliminate altogether and rely on the sauce to carry the taste of the grapefruit through). A keeper!

      Excellent! I halved the recipe and used pink grapefruit. I loved how all the flavors really complimented each other. The Beurre Blanc sauce was delicious! The halibut had a nice sear on the outside but moist on the inside. I will make this again and again! Made for Bargain Basement tag game.
