    what is a good sauce for a halibut dish

    1/2 c.  white wine  (a good wine)
    1/2 c. orange juice
    1/2 c. cold water
    2 tsp. grated orange rind
    1 tsp. lemon juice
    1 (11 oz.) can mandarin orange segments, drained
    1 c. seedless green grapes 1/2's
    2 lbs. halibut steaks or scallops ( fresh or frozen)

    2 c. boiling water
    2 tbsp. lemon juice
    1 tsp. salt
    1 tbsp. cornstarch
    1 tbsp. sugar

    If frozen, thaw fish. Cut into serving portions. Place fish in a well greased, large fry pan. Add boiling water, lemon juice and salt. Cover fry pan; simmer until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes.
    While fish is cooking, prepare sauce. Combine cornstarch and sugar in a small saucepan. Stir in orange juice, wine and cold water. Cook slowly, stirring constantly, until thickened. Stir in orange rind, lemon juice, and fruits; heat. Transfer cooked, drained fish carefully to a hot serving platter. Spoon sauce over halibut.

    This will hook them,,, and they won't throw you back.  Enjoy

    I like Trader Joes raits or Yogurt Cilantro Dip from the deli section. Both work great over fish.

    A terrific simple sauce of this great white fish is one of caper, lemons and butter.
    Once the fish is removed, deglaze the pan with a little lemon juice - about a tablespoon. Add a couple tablespoons of butter, bring to a slight simmer, and toss in a couple of teaspoons of drained capers.
    The resulting sauce is tangy, salty and light - great with this fish.
