Ingredients

BEURRE BLANC:
HALIBUT:

Directions

BEURRE BLANC:

Cut the butter in small cubes and put in a bowl. Set the bowl in ice water. (The butter should be very cold; otherwise it might melt too quickly and the sauce might break.) Place shallots in a medium stainless-steel saucepan. Add the white wine and wine vinegar. Boil the liquid over high heat until it is reduced to a scant 1 tablespoon. Just before serving, add the pieces of butter to the pan, 1 at a time, whisking well after each addition, until it has all been used. (The sauce should be fairly thick.) Add a little lemon juice to the sauce to taste. Season with salt and white pepper. If you're a purist, you'll want to strain the shallots out of the sauce before serving. Some chefs prefer to leave the shallots in; if you're among them, you might also want to mix finely minced parsley or tarragon into the sauce. And some chefs like to bolster the sauce with a little creme fraiche just before serving it. Keep sauce warm until needed. This sauce can be made up to 1 hour in advance and kept in a bain marie over warm water.;

HALIBUT:

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Season fillets well with salt and pepper. Cover fillets with mustard and place into a roasting pan. Cook fillets at 500 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from pan to a plate and surround with beurre blanc. Serve.;
