      What the recipe is missing is the essential ingredient- an acid, like lemon juice or vinegar, that coagulates the proteins and changes the texture of the fish, making it more lobster like. Sugar is optional, and a cup is far too much.

      A really great way to cook Halibut, better than breading and defrying. My husband loved it and wants me to make it again. Thank you!!!
