Braised Tomato Tarragon Halibut

Braised Tomato Tarragon Halibut
Cook / Prep Time: 45 min

With its long, slender, pointy green leaves, tarragon has a lovely, gentle combination of licorice and basil plus a pleasant lemony-sour aftertaste that builds as you eat it. I strongly recommend everyone to find yourself some FRESH tarragon.  Look for leaves that are green and not wilted. The light flavors of tarragon and the rich texture of halibut makes a wonderful healthy dish. – Jen
