*Caul fat is a weblike membrane of fatty material that encases the
organs of some animals, including pigs, sheep, and cows. When
wrapped around meat or fish, it adds flavor, moisture, and fat,
and basically melts into the meat or fish as it cooks. Some
butchers and specialty markets carry caul fat, but you may need
to ask your butcher or supermarket meat counter to order it. If
you can’t find caul fat, try wrapping the halibut in thin strips of

Direction   :

20-30 minutes to let it marinate.

Preparing the pea pur é e: Combine the spinach, lemon juice and
peas together using a food processor or a blender; stop the
processing to scrape down the sides from time to time. Process
the mixture until it is smooth in consistency. Add in pepper and
salt to taste then put it aside.

Put water and salt in a medium-sized saucepan and let it boil over
high heat setting.

Put in the asparagus and let it boil without

Drain the cooked asparagus spears and transfer it into the ice water right away to
stop the cooking process.

Drain the asparagus once more and pat them dry.

Put 2 tablespoons of butter in a medium-sized saucepan and let it
melt over moderately high heat setting. Put in the asparagus and
mix it well with the melted butter until coated.

mixture simmer while stirring it often for about 4 minutes until
the stock has almost absorbed.

Add some extra, 1 cup of the chicken stock at a time for about 20 more minutes until the rice
has softened and the consistency of the mixture is creamy; let the
stock be absorbed prior to adding in another cup while stirring the
mixture frequently.

butter, parsley and Parmesan cheese.
