This is from a recipe card I got from our local Safeway store years ago.

The recipe card suggests roasted asparagus is a good side dish, a sesame seed Filone (or a similar Italian baguette) is a good bread choice, and a good wine to serve with this halibut dish is a Spanish Albariño white wine (for its fruity, citrus flavor).
