We've been so busy lately building Foodista (there's more than just the blog!) that I haven't had the time (or energy) to whip up, style, and photograph the dishes I love sharing with you. So please bear with me. I promise the results will be worth it!

Fortunately, my good friend Tracy stepped up to the plate and has been my faithful pinch hitter. She has kindly and without complaint created beautiful dinners for us. Let me mention the fact that, by day, she is a busy attorney, president of a women's bar association, organizer of countless events, mama to a sweet and very active rescued dog, gourmand - the list goes on. And yet, bless her heart, she feeds us. Well. Very well.

The other night she prepared this halibut dish for us that just melted in my mouth. Tender and moist fillets that were more akin to clouds than food, and crisp garden fresh green beans simply dressed with a bit of butter.

Shiver me timbers. It was so simple, yet so delicious.

Here's what she did. In a sheet pan she spread roughly chopped green onions. She then placed the approximately 2" thick fillets on top, each with a pat of butter, and liberally drizzled them with dry white wine. The, she sprinkled on paprika, cayenne pepper, and salt and pepper. Broil them for about 10-15 minutes (depending on thickness) or until they are done. They came out looking and smelling divine.

What would we ever do without friends?

I made this tonight and it was delicious, despite my forgetting the pat of butter and accidentally dumping too much cayenne on the halibut. Super easy and healthy...my kind of dish!

Oh my! Halibut is one of my favorite kinds of fish. Very mellow, but unique and subtle flavor.
