Thanks for catching that @nithanhyle – This recipe first debuted on our site in 2015, and you’re the first person to catch this! :) I have changed the text to read Halibut instead of shrimp so that it gets cooked in the recipe. Thanks for flagging this.

The recipe asks you sauté shrimp that are not included in the ingredients. Then it asks you to add the cooked halibut, but never actually asks you to cook it….
