  Halibut with Morels and Asparagus

Chef Michael Cimarusti shares an easy late Spring recipe celebrating the fleeting season of morel mushrooms and asparagus.

Yield four portions

4-4 oz.  halibut fillets
1#         morels
2 ea.     shallots, minced
12 ea.   
asparagus tips peeled, blanched
1 bu.     chopped chive
1           lemon
simple   lemon vinaigrette
5 oz.     butter
Extra virgin olive oil
Clean the morels thoroughly in several changes of cold water.  Quarter the morels. Place them in a non-reactive saucepan with one ounce butter, the shallot and a squeeze of lemon, cover the morels and allow them to simmer slowly while you cook the fish.  Dry the fish with paper towels and season both sides with salt and Espellette pepper.  Warm a large skillet and add olive oil to coat the pan.  When the oil begins to smoke add the halibut.  Cook the halibut on high heat until the fish begins to brown lightly.  Place the skillet in a 350-degree oven for 2 minutes.  While the halibut is in the oven add the remaining 2 ounces of butter to the morels to thicken their juices, and in a separate pan, melt 2 oz. butter until it begins to brown and roast the asparagus tips until they are well browned, season with salt and pepper. Taste the mushrooms and their juices and adjust as needed with salt and lemon. Remove the fish from the pan and place it on paper towels to rest.  Add the chopped chives to the mushrooms and divide them among four warmed bowls and place the fish on top.  Spoon some of the morel juice over the fish, place the asparagus spears around the fish and serve.
