Around the Mediterranean they love to cook white fish in thick sauces, highly flavoured with tomatoes, onion and garlic. Halibut lends itself well to this particular combination of flavours.

  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 slices filleted halibut or halibut steaks
  • 1 small onion peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove crushed with 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 lb tomatoes skinned, seeded and chopped
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1/2 pint dry white wine

to finish:

  • 2 oz finely chopped hazelnuts
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley


  • Mix together 4 spoons of the oil, the lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Leave the halibut to soak in this marinade for 1 to 2 hours before cooking, basting and turning occasionally.
  • Heat the remaining oil in a deep flameproof casserole. Add the onion and garlic and fry gently until golden. Stir in the flour, tomatoes, tomato puree and white wine. Slowly bring to the boil, stirring constantly.
  • Add the marinated halibut, coating the fish with the sauce, and cover with a lid or foil.
  • Transfer to a moderate oven (180°C/350°F or Gas Mark 4) and bake for about 20 minutes or until the fish is tender and will flake easily with a fork.
  • Remove from the oven and top with the chopped hazelnuts and parsley. Serve immediately with creamed potatoes.
