About this Custom Cook

This custom cook adds a simple but delicious lemon caper sauce to the halibut and green beans combo cook. The lemon caper sauce is an easy way to transform a weeknight meal into a restaurant quality dish. This sauce would also be great on other types of white fish as well as chicken.


3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon butter
2 halibut fillets (about 1 inch thick)
½ lb green beans, stem ends trimmed (about 30 beans)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon capers, drained

1/2 lemon, sliced into thin rounds
1 tablespoon Italian parsley, chopped
