Starter
Spiked pepper gazpacho

Main
Roasted halibut with minted coulis
A coulis refers to a thick purée or sauce. This vibrant green one, with blended peas and refreshing mint, makes for a delicious match with mild and juicy roasted halibut.

Coulis is just a fancy term for a thick pur?e or sauce. Here, it's a vibrant green pur?e with a minty finish, and it makes a delicious match for mild roasted halibut.
