Recipe #30: Easy Baked Halibut

This recipe is an adaptation of one that I found on allrecipes.com. It's healthy and very light. You can make the topping according to your tastes, adding seasonings and veggies, but this is how I put mine together:


halibut steaks, cut into 6oz chunks
onion, minced, to taste
garlic, minced, to taste
tomato, diced, to taste
salt and pepper
fresh or dried basil
olive oil


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

First, lightly grease a shallow pan, and put the halibut steaks in the pan. Make sure the pieces are about 6oz each- cut the halibut steak into chunks if need be. Salt and pepper the pieces.

Saute the onion and garlic in olive oil until the onion starts to soften. Add the basil and cook a minute or two longer. Remove from heat, and mix in diced tomatoes. Place some of the topping on each of the halibut pieces.

Place in the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes, until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

I imagine that this topping would taste good on any similar, white flaky fish, like tilapia. I made steamed broccoli (with margarine, no salt) for the side.
