ALMOND SAUCE

POACHED HALIBUT

For the almond sauce, in a medium size saute pan heat olive oil until very hot. Add garlic and shallots and saute until you can smell the aroma about 1 minute. Add wine and over high heat reduce until about ¼ cup of liquid remains about 3 minutes. Add fish stock and again reduce until stock is reduced to about 1 cup another 3 to 4 minutes. Once the liquid is reduced add nuts, lemon juice, and thyme and mix well. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm.

For the fish, butter the sheet pan then lay the filets on top. Drizzle with white wine and season with salt and pepper. Place in a350 degree oven and bake 8 to 10 minutes or just until the halibut is just cooked and serve hot. Through. Remove from the oven and place the halibut in a soup plate.

Distribute the sauce over the filets and serve hot.
