This dish melts in your mouth. The credit goes to my future mother-in-law. Not only does it taste gorgeous, but halibut is a sustainably sourced fish. Each halibut fillet should be approximately an inch thick. Substitute crème fraîche for the double cream for a lighter dish.
This is the most delicious fish dish I have made - ever! I followed the recipe to the letter, I loved the sound of it and just didnt want to tweak or change anything and I'm so pleased that it turned out just as I hoped it would. Excellent!!! - 29 Jan 2011
The sauce really wasn't easy, and the final product was a little rich - so I might ease down on the cream next time - BUT - the combination with the halibut was very good, with complimentary flavours. i've never cooked halibut before: I live near Hastings and got some fresh from the fishermen there - and the meal was a real treat. Well worth doing again. - 14 Feb 2009
