This is a great recipe. I used swordfish because my local store did not have halibut, but besides this, I made no other substitutions. ThIs is a rich entree and should probably be served with a salad or light vegetable side dish. I mistakenly served it with a potato gratin which made the whole dinner a little too heavy. I will definitely make it again

We couldn't believe how outrageously yummy these halibut skewers are. Crusty Italian bread and halibut are seasoned with fresh rosemary, then woven with pancetta and grilled until golden. Time: 30 minutes.
