    Measuring Cups and Spoons

    A Blender

    A Sharp Chef’s Knife

    A Meat or Candy-Making Thermometer

    A 4-Quart Braising Pan with Cover

    A Large Plate

    Tin Foil

    A Kitchen Spoon

    A Serving Bowl or Gravy Dish



    6 (6 Ounce) halibut fillet

    6 Cups Lime Infused Olive Oil

    1 Tsp Sea Salt

    Fresh Ground Pepper

    1 Cup Parsley, Chopped

    1 Cup Basil, Chopped

    2 Tsp Garlic, Minced

    3 Tbsp Capers, Drained

    How To Put It Together:

Using a meat or candy thermometer, check the temperature until the oils reaches about 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Add the halibut to the pan; poach for 20 – 30 minutes depending on how done you prefer your fish. Transfer the halibut to a plate; cover with tin foil while you make the sauce.
    2) To the blender, add the chopped parsley, basil, garlic, capers, green olives, lime infused olive (from the pot), white wine, Sicilian lemon white balsamic, veggie broth, sea salt and a couple of shakes of hot sauce; blend till emulsified and transfer to a serving bowl or gravy dish.
    3) To plate: Place a halibut filet on a dinner plate, spoon sauce on top.
    4) Serve and enjoy!
