Fish is a fabulous source of low fat protein and omega 3 fatty acids. It’s perfect for a healthy lifestyle. I’ve added a vitamin rich white wine sauce of heirloom tomatoes, lemon and capers for a burst of color and incredible fresh flavor. This dish is fancy enough for company but easy for an “any night” meal. And fancy enough for my pals at FiestaFriday.net
Halibut In Burst Tomato, Wine Sauce
16 ounces of Halibut cut into 4 pieces (any firm white fish would work)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoons butter
1 cup heirloom “cherry” tomatoes
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons capers drained
3 slices preserved lemon or fresh lemon slices
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat olive oil and butter in a skillet. Salt and pepper each side of the fish and add to heated oils. Sear fish 3 minutes per side, remove from pan and set aside. Deglaze the pan with wine and add the remaining ingredients. Simmer until tomatoes burst about 8 minutes. Return fish to pan and simmer 5 minutes until fish is opaque and flakes. Don’t over cook the fish.
Serve fish with sauce.
If your diet allows, serve with a glass of crisp Sauvignon Blanc.
