    This dish is so easy, yet so flavoursome. This is a favourite in our household. If you like your food hot, try sprinkling on some crushed chillies or cayenne pepper for that extra kick.

    1. Preheat an oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Place halibut fillets on a large sheet of foil and season with Italian seasoning. Combine tomato, onion, olives, capers, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a bowl. Spoon tomato mixture over the halibut. Carefully seal all the edges of the foil to create a large packet. Place the packet on a baking tray.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, 30 to 40 minutes.


    Feel free to substitute in any firm white fish, such as cod.

    Oh so so tasty, simple, looks restaurant good, thanks  -  27 Apr 2013


    This made for a quick, delicious and satisfying lunch made with a combination of ingredients very familiar to me. Using Greek seasoning, however, was not something I've used often and I enjoyed it. Can't beat a dish that requires such little clean-up, is SO good for you and so flavorful. Other than using grouper instead of halibut (any mild flavored white fish would work) I made this with the ingredients as directed, just winging it with measurements. While I did miss the golden color that comes from grilling, roasting or sauteing, I was nevertheless very pleased with this, and since this calls for ingredients I always have in my kitchen, it's something I plan to treat myself to frequently.  -  28 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
