    Halibut Caprese

    Serves 4

     
    This dish goes really well with our Roasted Zucchini with Rosemary & Garlic!
     

    What You’ll Need:

    A Large Stainless Steel Pan with a Cover

    A Spatula or Tongs

    A Kitchen Spoon

    Measuring Cups and Spoons

    A Sharp Kitchen Knife

    4 Dinner Plates
     

    Ingredients:

    1 Tblsp Olive Oil

    1 Large Onion Sliced

    1 Yellow Pepper Sliced

    1 Tblsp Minced Garlic

    4 Cups Fresh Chopped Tomatoes

    2 Tblsps Capers

    2 Tblsps Lemon Juice

    1/4 Cup Chopped Basil

    1/2 Tsp Sea Salt

    Pinch Red Pepper Flakes

    4 6-Ounce Pieces of Halibut Fillet
     

    How To Put It Together:

    1) Preheat the pan over medium-high heat. You will know that the pan is ready when you place your hand about one inch from the pan’s surface and you feel heat radiating from the pan. Add the olive oil and swirl it around the pan.
     
    2) Saute the sliced onions until slightly opaque then add the yellow pepper and saute for about three minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes and stir them into the onion & pepper. Add the lemon juice and give it a quick stir.  Add the capers and the pepper flakes and stir them into the sauce.  Lastly, add the the chopped basil. Create a small bowl in the sauce by moving the vegetables around and place a piece of halibut in that open space. Repeat with the other 3 pieces of fish. Cover the pan and reduce the heat to medium. Allow the fish to simmer for 7 – 10 minutes or until it flakes lightly on top when pricked with a fork.
     
    3) Turn the stove off and transfer the pan to your work surface. Arrange the dinner plates nearby. To plate the Halibut Caprese: spoon some sauce onto the bottom of the plate and place a halibut fillet on top.
     
    4) Serve and enjoy!
     

    Nina’s Tasty Tip:

    When purchasing fish, use what I call ‘the nose & eye test’. Fish should smell fresh and clean, never ‘fishy’. White fish should be pearly white. If you notice a fishy smell or a gray tint to the fish, it’s not fresh.
