Thursday 7/9/09 - Alaskan Halibut w Tabbouleh and Asian Slaw

I have started falling behind on my CSA share a bit this week. My planned out meals left little space for working in my veggies so tonight I decided I had to make sure I included some in the menu. I had a nice halibut steak but I was a little upset to see a giant bone in the center! I always get fillets of fish and I didn't even think of it ... dinner came out great but of course ended up finding a few more.

This halibut was taken from a recipe on cookinglight
