Halibut with Leeks from Cooking Light

Raisins and vinegar lend sweet-tart appeal to a dish inspired by a classic Italian approach.

  • Yield: 4 servings ( Serving Size: 1 fillet & 2/3 c. leek mixture )


  • 3 tablespoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 cup(s) leeks sliced 1/2" thick, about 4 medium
  • 3/4 cup(s) golden raisins
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon(s) tarragon vinegar
  • 4 (6oz) halibut fillets
  • cooking spray
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) freshly ground black pepper


Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the olive oil to pan, swirling to coat. Add leeks and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt to pan; cover and cook 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 3/4 cup water to pan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 6 minutes, or until leeks are tender. Remove from heat. Stir in raisins, vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper; keep warm. Heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat the pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle fish evenly with 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Add fish to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Serve fish with leek mixture.
