At first, I was hesitant to try this recipe, but I'm very glad I did—the apple and halibut flavors complement one another so well. —Marilyn Rodriguez of Fairbanks, Alaska

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 2, 2011

I didn't have kabob sticks so I did this as a stir fry instead it was amazing! Only suggestion if you try a stir fry is to do the fish separately as it tends to break apart if you mix everything together.
