    This is a foolproof way to make halibut steaks, not to mention healthy and delicious. Fresh veggies top the halibut, which is baked in the oven with simple seasoning till it flakes perfectly.

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
    2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion, pepper, mushrooms, garlic and courgette. Cover, and cook stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.
    3. Place halibut steaks into a shallow baking dish, and top with the sauteed vegetables. Season with basil, salt and pepper.
    4. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, then remove the dish, and cover the fillets with a layer of sliced tomato. Return to the oven, and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

    This was a fabulously tasty way to cook halibut! My boyfriend made this one. He only cooked two halibut steaks, and did the whole thing in the skillet, using probably 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil. Even though it was only two steaks, he used all of the other vegetables, all of the pepper instead of half, and cut the tomato into wedges instead of slices. When he served, he just ladled all of the vegetables over the steaks, and it presented beautifully. It was a wonderful dinner!  -  17 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We liked this recipe. The only thing, the vegetables were over cooked for our taste and would prefer more garlic. So when I make this again I will briefly sauté the vegetables hoping they will come out a little crispier. Thanks LittleAsta!  -  13 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe. Because I hate mushy zucchini - I added it during the last min. when the onions/garlic/mush./grn peppers were almost done and cooked to a tender crisp. I then brushed each halibut peice w/ a little olive oil, layered the vegetables around and atop of the halibut. Finally, I omitted the tomato altogether - for fear of mushy. Overall very good and here you have you maindish and veggies all in one! (However, I did serve with a side of rice pilaf). Thanks!  -  28 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
