Mild halibut pairs nicely with this tangy relish, starring tasty late-summer tomatoes. Any other meaty, firm fish, such as wild salmon or striped bass, will also work.
2 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 (12-ounce) beefsteak tomato, halved crosswise and seeded
3/8 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped shallots
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
2 ounces pitted green olives, coarsely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
4 (6-ounce) halibut fillets
How to Make It
Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Brush 1 1/2 teaspoons oil over cut sides of tomato; sprinkle evenly with 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Place tomato, cut sides down, on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Cover and grill 8 minutes. Cool slightly; peel and chop tomato. Combine tomato, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, 1 tablespoon oil, basil, and next 6 ingredients (through garlic); toss gently.
Brush fillets evenly with 1 tablespoon oil; sprinkle evenly with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Place fillets, flesh side down, on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 5 minutes; turn and grill 3 minutes or until fish flakes when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with tomato mixture.

I made this for my husband and I and it was pretty good. We got the fish at Santa Monica seafood ($28.99/lb). I'm not sure the grilled tomato process was worth the effort. The relish was good but not a wow. we grilled the (1-inch+) fish for a total of 6 minutes and it was slightly over done. 4-5 minutes would have been perfect.
Just made the recipe tonight. It was fantastic! I didn't have halibut, so used another white fish. The relish was so sweet, yet tart from the olives. I used one store bought roma tomato (somewhat bland), some cherry tomatos from my garden, and threw a couple of sundried tomatos in also. I served it with brown basamati rice and steamed veggies. Absolutely fantastic, and would be a great special occasion meal with the pricier halibut! I will definately make this again!
