Heat the fryer. Slice the carrots lengthwise on a mandoline. Dry the carrots and fry until the carrots curl up. Place on paper towels to absorb the excess fat. Season.

In a large sauté pan, heat the oil. Add the shallots, leek and cayenne pepper and sweat. Add the mushrooms and oregano, and brown. When half-cooked, add the wine, vegetable juice and sour cream. Raise the heat to medium-high. Mix, then reduce for 5 minutes, or until the liquid is reduced by half.

In the meantime, in a non-stick pan, brown the halibut pavés in 15 mL (1 Tbsp.) butter. Once nicely browned, transfer the fish on top of the mushroom mixture. Cover and finish cooking over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the halibut is cooked.

To serve, make a bed of mushrooms in the centre of each plate. Top with a halibut pavé and garnish with some crispy fried carrots and a few chive stems.
