Directions for: Halibut Poached in Olive Oil


2 skinned filets of halibut (1/4 pound/125 g each)

1 ½ cup olive oil

Zest of one orange

½ tsp fennel seed

2 sprig thyme

1 clove garlic

Freshly ground black pepper

Fleur de sel, for garnish


1. Heat the oven to 250°F/120°C. Lay the fish filets in a baking dish just large enough to hold them. Pour over enough oil to cover. Add the orange zest, fennel, thyme, garlic, and pepper. Bake until just tender, about 10 minutes. Remove the fish from the oil. Garnish with fleur de sel. Serve with a little of the cooking oil dribbled over.
