Halibut With Citrusy Tomatoes and Capers April 22, 2015

In addition to salmon in the freezer, we like to keep halibut around too. A friend had made this recipe and recommended it to me. It is easy to make and very tasty. All ingredients are things I keep around so it was nice to throw together on a week night.


  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 4 6-ounce pieces skinless halibut fillet or some other firm-fleshed white fish

Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Add the tomatoes, orange juice, parsley, capers, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and simmer until the tomatoes begin to break down, 4 to 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the remaining teaspoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

Season the fish with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cook until opaque throughout, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Serve with the tomatoes.
