Spanish Halibut

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by dianegrapegrower

Adapted this from a recipe in "Cuisine at Home". The original included shrimp in the sauce, and served on a bed of sauteed collard greens. It was excellent, but I needed something simpler for everyday dining.

Excellent recipe - I had a lovely filet of fresh halibut, seared one side flipped it poured in the remaining ingredients, covered it with a lid for apprx 8 minutes - it came out flakey, moist and delicious.I put the parsley in with it while it was cooking. It would look nicer sprinkled on top as a garnish (as you suggested) Thanks for posting this recipe Dianegrapegrower
