Halibut Cordon Blue

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.
