    4Susan's Note:

    Easier than it sounds! The spicy pale green chutney is made in a food processor and the halibut fillets are easily folded up within parchment paper or foil. Get your guests to cut open the little parcels at the table, it’s a good wow factor as the steam bursts forth with the exotic aromas. Recipe adapted from Indian Home Cooking. Indian Sweet and Sour Butternut Squash (see my recipes) makes a great accompaniment to this fish!
