Yield
Serves 4 (serving size: 1 fillet and about 1/2 cup tomato mixture)

Sustainable Choice. For a more budget-friendly option, try substituting a similarly textured fish, such as cod, for the halibut fillets.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil, and swirl to coat. Sprinkle fish with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Add fish to pan; cook 5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove fish from pan; keep warm.

Step 2

Add remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to pan. Add tomatoes and garlic; sauté 3 minutes. Add vinegar; cook 1 minute or until tomatoes begin to burst. Stir in basil and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Serve tomato mixture with fish.

Super-easy. Made to directions using sea bass so needed a bit longer to cook fish. Liked the hot-summer-salad combo of tomato, basil, balsamic. Good choice for another snowy evening. Had CL's broccoli cheese soup to start.

Great flavor and loved the sauce. Also used cod - halibut is not in my budget. Not a big tomato fan, but it was the tomatoes had very good flavor with the balsamic glaze.

This was great - loved the flavor combination. Feta or mozzarella cheese might also be a yummy addition.

Great taste, easy enough for a weeknight. It would be better if there was a bit more sauce.
