ok so I started with some apricot "sauce" (I'm sure a preserve would be fine) added some thyme and rosemary, salt and pepper and minced garlic

then simmered for ten minutes or so

took half that sauce and placed it in a bowl to cool, the other half waited patiently on the cook top

then for our side made some herb butter, with shallot and orange zest and chive.

toasted some pecans

got the asparagus out and trimmed off the naughty bits

and got ready to cook it

now back to our main course

I took some home made bread crumbs and mixed it 50/50 with corn meal (home made bread crumbs- bread in a food processor hehe)

on a side note, started sauteeing some raddichio and the asparagus in the herb butter with pecans (and later some parmesan)

take the halibut and dredge it in the sauce from earlier that has FULLY COOLED!!!

coat well and then into the corn meal/bread crumb mixture to coat

shake off the excess (if there is any) cook 3 or 4 minutes a side (kind of depends on the size of your filet)

our side is done, so set it aside

the feesh is a nice golden brown

set on a rack for a second to drain any excess oil there was really only a couple tablespoons but I didn't want any greasy flavors.

and now it all comes together, the other half of the sauce is used to dress the fish and the asparagus and raddichio is added

an excellent beer to have with this meal, bluemoon "honeymoon" the sweet taste is a perfect aperitif
