Halibut Cocktail

Halibut Cocktail

This Halibut Cocktail is a great appetizer. I first made this cocktail when I had left over halibut from dinner several years ago.  I was just experimenting and loved it! Now I’ll buy one halibut steak when they are on sale just to make it. You could really use any white fish.

The next couple of weeks I’m doing a series on a

Five Course Candlelight Valentine’s Day Dinner for Two

Our son, James, stopped by the house the day I was making this. He came up with centerpiece for my Halibut Cocktail by making a beautiful butterfly out of a radish. Then he cut some zucchini in different lengths to make the tree stump. He then chopped up some celery leaves to sprinkle around the bottom. Used a toothpick to stand the butterfly up. Isn’t he clever and creative.

So be sure and join me each week for this new trivia series. This week we will be in Puerto Rico.
