From article: Southern (Italian) Style

  • 4 servingsServings


  • 11/2 lbs. halibut filet
  • 4 Tbs. olive oil, divided
  • 1 pint organic small cherry tomatoes (I use Sweet 100s)
  • 1/4 cup shredded basil leaves
  • 1 Tbs. pine nuts
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Cut halibut into four equal portions. Place on parchment-lined sheet pan and oil both sides of fish pieces with 2 Tbs. olive oil. Bake 14-18 minutes depending on the thickness of fish, until cooked through but not dry. Transfer to warm serving platter or individual plates.
  2. Place tomatoes on another foil-lined sheet pan, and drizzle with remaining olive oil. Roast in oven until soft, but still whole, about 15 minutes. Toss with basil, pine nuts, and salt and pepper to taste. Spoon over fish, and serve.

In medium bowl, toss asparagus with remaining oil, salt, and pepper, and arrange on other half of roasting pan. Nestle lemon quarters among filets and asparagus.
