Halibut with Eggplant, Tomatoes and Kalamata Olives

By: The Food Hunter

This Mediterranean-inspired recipe makes having a delicious weeknight dinner easy. Halibut is a mild, white fish, similar to cod, with a firm and flaky texture. It pairs well with bold flavors such as Kalamata olives, garlic and basil. The tomatoes and eggplant in this dish add addition layers of depth and flavor. 

For this recipe I used a wild halibut filet from Omaha Steaks. Responsibly sourced, perfectly portioned and flash frozen day of catch I find their seafood to be perfect choice for weeknight meals. 

Halibut with Eggplant, Tomatoes and Kalamata Olives

2 Cups Diced Eggplant
1 Cup Chopped Tomatoes
1/4 Cup Fresh Basil
4 Large Garlic Cloves, Crushed
Crushed Red Pepper
1/2 Cup Chopped Kalamata Olives
Olive Oil
1 lb. Halibut

Season Halibut with salt and pepper.

Heat olive oil in a pan over medium high heat. Add garlic and crushed red pepper and sauté until fragrant. Add in eggplant season with salt, and cook for approximately 15 minutes. Add tomatoes and allow them to cook down. Then add in basil and cook for a few minutes more. Add in olives and cook for an additional minute or two.

In the mean time add halibut, to a pan and cook for 3-4 minutes before flipping.  Once cooked through place on top of veggie mix and serve.
