Complete dinner dish with salad From: http://www.jemangelaville.com/index.php?s=halibut May 16th from web site: "This was a very, very Spring-like, light and good meal. But here is a lesson for you ? use big, fat asparagus spears. Mine were on the smaller side and vegetable peeling them into strips was?challenging. I used the peeler and then I had to just use a knife to slice what was too small too peel into tiny, thin strips. It worked but it was pretty time consuming. Just use big asparagus and you will thank me for that tip, which should be somewhat obvious, but to me anyway, was not at all. Duh! Also, raw asparagus is very good! At least in little strips and tossed with lemon-dijon dressing. The halibut was just opaque and very moist. Loved the crunchy topping. The original recipe served six. Below, I kept the salad amounts the same as in the original, but kinda halved the fish amounts. So, adjust that as needed if you are making this for more than two people or don?t want as much salad." Adapted from a recipe in Bon Appétit magazine, April 2010 "We did have a little leftover salad. The next night I toasted up some sourdough bread and made a bruschetta snack ? bread, fennel-asparagus salad and a shaving of Robusto cheese! The whole meal was great. I?m definitely going to make the salad again before the end of asparagus season, because the bruschetta snack was wonderful!"
