Sous Vide Halibut with Melon and Wheat Berries Recipe

With a relatively bold flavor, halibut pairs well with many things but for this summer salad I combine it with sweet cantaloupe, zesty feta, and sour lemon for a simple but tasty dish. The addition of wheat berries rounds it all out with a nutty and sweet flavor. This dish also works well with other white fish, or even chicken and turkey.
