I know it looks like I am on an artichoke binging spree here but I'm not. This recipe was one of the first I ever posted on my foodie blog "Midnight Sun Mama" back in June, 2008. I've learned a lot since then. Like, many chefs recommend removing the gills of the mushroom. One thing stands true though, halibut is a lovely fish that eagerly takes on other flavors yet remains tender and sweet and artichokes have that musky, rich taste that pair with mushrooms willingly. Wish there was a grill and bake option because that is what you are doing. I hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do.
