I love fish, but it can be a tricky thing. At first I overcooked everything. Then I tried to cook it in the serving sauce. I have found in very few circumstances should you bake fish in a sauce. Swordfish works very well baked in sauces, but for the most part you really should cook the fish and sauce separately.
1 lb Halibut fillet
1 tbl olive oil
salt and pepper
2 tbl olive oil
2 cloves garlic minced
15 oz can peeled tomatoes
1/4 cup kalamata olives, halved
1 tbl fresh chopped basil
1 tbl capers, drained and rinsed
dash of red pepper flakes
fresh lemon slices
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Coat the fish with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes turning once. (Internal temp should be around 135 degrees).
In a large saute pan heat oil and add garlic for a minute. Then add tomatoes with juice, olives, capers and red pepper flakes. Bring to a simmer and cook about 10 minutes stirring frequently.
Spoon the sauce over the fish and garnish with basil and lemon slice. Very easy and great flavor!
I serve this with some basmati rice and a good chardonnay! I know what you are thinking!
