Phyllo Wrapped Halibut

It's been a while since I've talked about my precious boyfriend, so..... I was in the kitchen making this dinner and Stephen was watching TV. All of a sudden he started talking about a meal I had made for him recently. He asks, "Baby, what you were those black things in the rice?" I say, "Oh those are kalmata olives." He then tells me, "Well, I don't like those things." So, I immediately stopped chopping up the olive tapenade I was making and start looking through the refrigerator to find something else to wrap up with the halibut.

Phyllo Wrapped Halibut
6 phyllo dough sheets, thawed
3 T. butter, melted
2 halibut filets
Salt and pepper
Dried thyme
Matchstick carrots
Green onions, cut on bias
Shrimp, thawed
Ground red pepper
Half and half

Season halibut with salt, pepper and thyme. On flat surface, lay 1 phyllo sheet. Coat with thin layer of melted butter. Layer next phyllo sheet and melted butter. Continue until you have layered all 6 phyllo sheets. Cut the phyllo sheets in half. In the middle of each phyllo layer, add carrots and green onions, then top with halibut. Wrap phyllo around fish and lightly press to seal. Put on baking sheet with the seam down and put thin layer of melted butter on top. Put small slits in the phyllo to allow steam to release. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until phyllo dough is browned.

While baking, season shrimp with salt, pepper and ground red pepper. In skillet, reduce half and half until thick. Add shrimp, cook through. Serve with mashed sweet potatoes.
