Mediterranean halibut fish fillet

When you can find fresh and seasonal ingredients it’s easy to cook: the quality of the ingredients will do the job 🙂
Today I found a nice halibut fillet, fresh and wild caught. so inviting that I could not resist.


I try to cook fish few times a week for my family (it’s so important for the kids’ diet!!) and I try to find yummy and inviting ways to cook it as my Luca’s picky palate would not be so pleased in front of a delicate steamed sole fish 🙂

The Mediterranean halibut recipe I’m sharing with you is a very traditional Italian way to cook fish fillets: with tomatoes, capers, olives and parsley (or basil if you want). I used canned tomatoes (I run out of fresh ones…if you have them, it’s perfect!!) to create a nice and creamy sauce for the fish.

    This recipe is something my mother used to make for me growing up. She is Italian, from Puglia, and obviously doesn’t have a recipe for this dish. Luckily, I found your website! My husband and son loved this dish. I can’t wait to try your other recipes and subscribe.
