• 1 ounce of diced pancetta

• 1 ounce of spring onion

• 1 green garlic, chopped

• 2 ounces of pea puree

• Butter

• Oil

In a hot pan, add oil, season halibut, and sear for a beautiful golden brown.

In another hot pan, sauté green garlic, onion, and pancetta to render.

Add a nice pad of butter and add fava beans and English peas.
