Broiled Halibut With Buttery Tomato Sauce & Steamed Broccoli


It’s time to start eating more fish in my house (or at least try to).  We’ve loaded up on the red meat this summer and it’s time to take a break.  I saw this recipe in Canadian Living Magazine and had to give it a try.  It looked so light and fresh – and simple!  The great thing about recipes from Canadian Living and Chatelaine is that they focus on complete healthy meals that are ready in a snap; that way you don’t have to go searching for a side dish to serve alongside the entrée, they take the guesswork out of it for you!  My family loved the tomato sauce in this dish – something about the honey and basil really gives it oomph.  Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!





Broiled Halibut With Buttery Tomato Sauce & Steamed Broccoli
4 small halibut fillets
Salt & pepper
4c broccoli florets
1 T lemon juice
Salt & pepper
2 T butter
2 shallots chopped
2 garlic minced
2 plum tomatoes seeded & chopped
½ tsp honey
Salt & pepper
1/2c fresh basil leaves torn

Sprinkle fish with salt & pepper (I used seasoning salt to give it a little extra flavor).  Broil on greased baking sheet 8 minutes.  Steam broccoli 6 minutes, then toss with lemon juice, salt & pepper.  In a skillet melt butter over medium-high.  Cook the next 2 ingredients until the butter is browned, 1 minute.  Stir in the remaining ingredients and cook, tossing, 1 minute.  Spoon sauce over fish and serve alongside the broccoli.
