Halibut with Bacony Corn Saute Recipe

Be sure to buy fresh, never-frozen fish, summer corn on the cob and in the husks, and your favorite bacon. Applewood-smoked bacon is more subtle than hickory or mesquite and won't clobber all of the other ingredients. Just a spritz of fresh lime juice brings the flavors into perfect balance.


Serves 4 (serving size: 1 fillet and about 1/2 cup corn mixture)
