Yield 4 servings (serving size: about 1 fillet and about 1/2 cup fennel mixture)
Farm-inspired menus are a specialty of City Catering Company in Seattle. This dish takes advantage of fresh produce, as well as halibut, which is in season this time of year. You can use all orange or a combination of orange and grapefruit. Blood oranges would also make a lovely choice.

Ingredients

  • 4 (6-ounce) halibut fillets
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/4 cups shaved fennel bulb (about 1/2 bulb)
