Another clipping from my Great Aunt's recipe collection. I am not sure if she tried this one or not, but it certainly sounds good to me. This one came from a cookbooklet put out by the small local newspaper, The Naperville Sun.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil some water (you will need enough to cover the fish)- once it has boiled, add some salt to taste.
  2. Put halibut into a large skillet and cover with boiling salted water.
  3. Place lemon, onion, parsley, and tarragon on top, cover and simmer 8-10 minutes or until halibut is just beginning to flake when poked with a fork (don't overcook).
  4. Meanwhile, combine cornstarch, brown sugar, salt, Tabasco, and butter in a small pan for the sauce.
  5. Add orange juice and lemon juice and cook and stir until thickened and clear.
  6. Add orange sections and heat through, then serve over fish.

We are trying to eat more fish so I decided to give this recipe a try. We really liked the sauce but the verdict is still out as to whether we like the flavor of halibut. The recipe was very easy and not a lot of ingredients. Thanks HeatherFeather.

This is the first time I have tried an orange sauce on fish. It was a nice change from the usual fried fish. This was good, but I must say, I like it breaded and fried best. Thanks Heather, for broadening my horizens!
