Looking for some spring inspired menus, I pulled down several years of old Bon Apetite April issues. In the 1995 one I found this halibut recipe along with a delicious sounding menu. So, we invited friends over and I spent a good part of the weekend preparing dinner. Here's what we had:

*Artichoke and white bean dip with baked pita chips (from Giada)
*chopped salad (brought by my friend)
*she also brought a loaf of bread from the Swiss bakery (a long dark loaf, twisted and covered with all kinds of seeds-it was to die for!)
*Halibut wrapped in Swiss Chard
*asparagus with gremolata
*roasted rosemary potatoes
*chocolate tart with raspberries

I can't tell you how wonderful the halibut was. It was an adventure for me as I have not "steamed" much but the fish turned out perfectly and the ginger cream sauce could not have been better.

While everything else was delicious, I am a dessert person and I LOVED the chocolate raspberry tart and can't wait to make it again. I initially picked it because it uses raspberry jam and I am trying to use up some of last year's jam supply to make room for this years creations.

Since it was a magnificant spring day (and all the bugs have not come out yet) it was a perfect time to eat outside, enjoy good food and friends. It's so nice whan everything turns out well :) So, I just had to share these recipes with you all!
