Halibut Cordon Blue

Author: Canadian Living

We ocean fish most weekends through the summer months. The thrill of catching a halibut approximately 30 pounds provides the opportunity of making the "perfect halibut cordon blue". To accompany the main is a refreshing salad dish which includes rice, peaches, capsium, celery, onion, saltanos, cashew nuts and dressing. The dressing is olive oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, fruit chutney and curry.

Heat the olive and garlic in a frying pan to a med high heat. Cut a pocket into each of the fillets. Place 2 slices each of cheese and bacon. Dip fillets into the beaten egg mixture. Cover the fillets in Panko bread crumbs. Place the fillets into the olive oil until a golden brown on each side. Place the golden brown fillets onto a cookie sheet and place into a preheated oven at 350. Cook for approximately 20 minutes. Prepare the sauce, melt the butter in small saucepan. Stir in flour to make a smooth roux. Gradually stir in stock and milk to make a smooth thickened sauce. Stir in lemon pepper and capers.
