  1. Delicious stew. Made a double batch to quickly use a lot of halibut. I had chicken broth already made in slow cooker and added the rest of the ingredients except the halibut and cilantro, cooked high for half an hour, added halibut for another half hour. Refrigerated overnight, then added frozen cilantro before heating and serving. Both husband and I loved it and its a good way add more halibut to the menu. Had bought 2 lbs. "previously frozen" halibut on super sale due to expiration date that day. Made terrific meal for two days in a row.

  2. Awesome stew! Made this with halibut my boyfriend caught in Alaska. Added reaper pepper spices and it was a little hot – a few spoonfuls of sour cream made this sauce even better!

    1. Christine, YUM!!! Thanks for the feedback. Must be nice to have some halibut straight from Alaska. 🙂

  3. This sounds delicious!! Cant wait to try it. Any chance can be frozen and add cilantro when ready serve?
