Halibut with Tomato Basil Sauce, Olives and Onions

Fresh seafood is always a treat and this dish exemplifies the flavours of a seaside port. Halibut has a nice semi firm flesh and the accent of tomato sauce with olives and onions brings out the best of this fish.


  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 yellow onion, peeled and slivered

  • 4 halibut filets, 8 oz each, skin on

  • ¼ cup dry white wine

  • 1 jar Marinelli’s Tomato & Basil sauce

  • ¼ cup black olives, pitted and halved

  • 1⁄2 bunch parsley, chopped

  • Pinch red pepper flakes

  • Sea salt to taste

Chef's Cooking Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat, add onions and cook, stirring occasionally until slightly soft, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add halibut, skinned side up and cook until lightly golden, about 2 minutes. Turn fish and cook other side another 2 minutes.
  3. Add wine, tomato sauce, olives, half the parsley and red pepper flakes to the pan with the fish. Season to taste with salt and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered, until fish is just cooked through, 8 – 10 minutes, spooning sauce over fish as it cooks.
  4. Adjust seasonings and sprinkle with remaining parsley.

Enjoy with a vibrant Rosé wine.

Boun apetito!
