cooking process

Halfbeak, a fish known for its elegant shape, is in season in early spring. In this dish that heralds spring's arrival, the halfbeak is marinated and served with a colorful fruit-filled dressing. Preparation is remarkably fast and easy. You can make the sauce while the fish marinates. Leave the fish to marinate in salt, pepper and oil for about 15 minutes so the dressing will adhere to the fish. If halfbeak isn't available, use sea bream or sole.
