Halibut Stew with Olives and Lemon

Total time 45 mins
Yield Makes 4 servings
This savory fish stew comes together in about 45 minutes and leaves you time during the prep to toss a quick salad or toast a loaf of bread.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained and minced
  • Grated lemon zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 3/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 pound Yukon Gold potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 3/4-in. cubes
  • 1 package (8 oz.) thawed frozen artichoke hearts, quartered if large
  • 1 pound halibut chunks
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 cup pitted medium green olives
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

How to Make It

  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add garlic, capers, and lemon zest and stir just until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

  2. Add wine and simmer, until reduced by half, about 2 minutes. Add broth and potatoes and return to a simmer. Lower heat slightly to maintain simmer, cover, and cook 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, sprinkle halibut with salt and pepper.

  4. Add artichokes and halibut chunks to pot and stir. Cover and cook until potatoes are tender when pierced and halibut is opaque in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in parsley, lemon juice to taste, and olives. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot, with lemon wedges on the side.
