Halibut gets a Mediterranean flavor when baked in this zesty tomato sauce with capers, olives, and herbs.

Ingredients

uncooked halibut fillet(s)

1 pound(s), skinless

uncooked onion(s)

1 medium, sliced

garlic clove(s)

1 medium clove(s), minced

canned diced tomatoes

29 oz

capers

1 Tbsp, drained and rinsed

olive(s)

5 medium, kalamata, pitted and chopped

fresh lemon juice

1 Tbsp

dried basil

1 tsp

dried oregano

1 tsp

black pepper

¼ tsp, freshly ground

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Place the halibut in an 8-inch-square baking dish.
  2. Spray a large nonstick skillet with olive oil nonstick spray and set over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, capers, olives, lemon juice, basil, oregano, and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 6 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the fish. Bake until the fish is just opaque in the center, about 10 minutes. Yields 1⁄4 of halibut and about 1⁄2 cup sauce per serving.

Notes

Halibut is a lean fish that dries out easily when overcooked, so be sure to bake it just until it loses its glossy appearance and becomes opaque.
