Halibut with Morel Sauce

Halibut with Morel Sauce
Honorable Mention, Earthy Delights 2009 Morel Recipe Contest
Ingredients:

10 dried morel mushrooms
7 oz white wine
16 oz chicken stock
1-1/2 cup heavy cream
3 oz butter

2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
4 halibut steaks
salt & freshly ground pepper
2 oz butter



Directions:


Soak the dried morels in the white wine until soft, about 15 minutes.

 

Heat the oil in a large non-stick pan over a medium heat.


Season the halibut steaks with salt and freshly ground black pepper and add to the pan skin-side down. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until golden-brown and the fish is nearly cooked through, then turn the halibut steaks over and add the butter.

Reduce the heat and cook for another 1-2 minutes, or until the fish is just cooked through. Set aside on a warm platter.


Place the morels and wine into a pan with the chicken stock and bring to the boil. Cook to reduce the liquid to about 1/2.

Add the heavy cream bring to near boiling point.

Add the butter and stir to combine.


To serve, place a halibut steak onto each plate and spoon over pan juices and the morel cream sauce.
