    keeney's Note:

    This recipe comes from Sheila Lukins "Celebrate!". The list of ingredients looks long, but it is a very easy dish to prepare, and the outcome is outstanding! I used Orange Roughy instead of the Halibut. Used four large fillets, and the amount of sauce was perfect. I added a few extra chickpeas and raisins. The family doesn't like mint, so I left it out, and I didn't have fresh parsley, so used about 2 T. dried. For a side dish, I made couscous with chicken broth, and added some toasted almonds. The table was set with a rich colored table cloth, candles and a lot of old brass. Dimmed the lights and had one romantic dinner! A definite do again.
