Halibut with Pinot Grigio Pan Sauce and Butter-Toasted Almonds

Halibut with Pinot Grigio Pan Sauce and Butter-Toasted Almonds

This is a simple and elegant dish that you can make for a fast, after-work dinner, or plate it up for a special occasion.  Any kind of firm, white fish will work in place of the halibut, and you can swap out different fresh herbs for the tarragon.  This is more of a technique than […]
