While growing up in coastal India, we always had luxury of getting very fresh fish. Though I don’t miss it much, V misses the Sunday fish lunches very much. So last time when we went to buy fish, I remembered a baked fish which I had seen on TV many times. We came home with Halibut (Please do not ask me what is this fish called in one of Indian languages, I have no idea).
This was the first time we tasted this fish and I just made up the recipe from what I remembered watching on Food Network sometime ago. It came out delicious. I served it with fettuccine pasta with white sauce. It made a nice dinner.
Its mostly a method, not an exact recipe, you can change, mix and match ingredients to suit your taste.
Preheat the oven at 300F for about 10mins.
Take the halibut piece on a parchment paper or silver foil.
Season generously with salt and pepper.
In a bowl, mix together onion, tomato, chopped garlic, chopped black olives, red pepper flakes, chopped jalapeÃ±os, red pepper flakes and little salt.
Pile about 2 tbl spns of mixture on the fish piece. Top with few fresh basil leaves.
Fold the foil/paper over the fish.
Bake in the hot oven at 300F for about 30-40mins or till the fish is completely cooked.
Serve with pasta.
