I was enthralled by Pvt Amys Mom's recipe of Halibut Florentine, but was lacking so many ingredients... so working on that I ended up with this! Thank you pvt. Amys mom...I cant wait to make your recipe. My Hubby adores this and thinks it is absolutely company worthy!!! LOVE IT! and I usually do not love my own cooking...my own worse critic and all...
