Serves: 2
  • 6 Tbsp white wine
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 4 Tbsp whipping cream
  • ½ tsp fresh garlic, chopped
  • Pinch turmeric
  • Pinch white pepper
  • 4 tsp unsalted butter, diced
  • Lemon zest and herbs for garnish
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 - 6-8 oz halibut filets
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small zucchini cut into ¼ inch strips
  • 1 small yellow squash cut into ¼ inch strips

  5. In a skillet over medium high heat, add the olive oil. Sauté the vegetables until crisp tender, about 2-3 minutes. Keep warm.
