Directions for: Halibut Provencal


2 Tbsp olive oil

4 6 oz halibut filets, dried on paper towels

Salt and pepper to taste

1 large onion, peeled and chopped

8 clove garlic, peeled and minced

4 ripe tomatoes, chopped or 1 can of whole tomatoes

24 black olives, pitted

24 green olives, pitted

¼ cup of capers

¼ cup best quality balsamic vinegar


1. Preheat a large heavy skillet. Add enough oil to cover the bottom with a thin film. When wisps of smoke begin to appear, season the halibut with salt and pepper and add to the pan. Sear on one side until it has a crispy golden crust and releases easily from the pan. Flip and sear on the other side, remove to a plate and reserve.

2. Add the onions and garlic to the hot pan, and sauté until they smell great, a minute or two. Add the tomatoes olives, capers and balsamic and heat through. Add the halibut back to the pan and continue heating until the fish is cooked through, another five minutes or so.
