Sweet 'n' Sour Halibut Recipe

Sweet 'n' Sour Halibut Recipe

We live on the West Coast and catch a lot of halibut off our fishing boat. My family has always loved fresh fish, and this recipe is a favorite. The cubed halibut is cooked in a sweet-and-sour sauce along with pineapple, green pepper and tomatoes - yum! -Willa Gilio, Cayucos, California
