Lemon Halibut

  Onion 1 , thinly sliced
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Defatted chicken stock 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Romaine lettuce head 1 , cut into 1 inch squares
  Lemon juice 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (Of 2 Lemons)
  Ground black pepper 1 Pinch
  Halibut fillets 24 Ounce (4 Fillets Of 6 Ounce Each)
  Water 2 Tablespoon
  Cornstarch 1 Tablespoon

In a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat, saute the onions in the oil until transparent, about 5 minutes.
Add the stock and bring to a boil.
Add the lettuce and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the lettuce just starts to wilt.
Stir in the lemon juice and pepper.
Add the fish and cook for 5 minutes, or until just firm to the touch.
Carefully drain the excess liquid from the frying pan into a 2-quart saucepan.
Over high heat, cook until reduced by half, about 5 to 7 minutes.
In a cup, mix the water and cornstarch until smooth.
Add to the saucepan and cook for a few minutes to thicken the sauce.
Stir in the chives and capers.
To serve, transfer portions of lettuce and fish to dinner plates.
