The following recipe comes from Chow and Chatter:


  • 2 halibut steaks
  • one can of chopped tomato
  • about a cup of chopped fresh basil
  • some Italian herbs
  • 3 cloves of chopped garlic
  • one chopped zucchini and one yellow squash (cut Julienne style)
  • about a cup of polenta
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 a red onion finely chopped
  • a drizzle of balsamic vinegar


  1. heat a little olive oil and saute the onions and garlic with squash and zucchini for 5 minutes then remove from heavy bottomed pan (I used a Le Creuset)
  2. then pan sear the halibut with herbs on each side, add the onions and vegetables back in with a can of tomatoes and fresh basil and simmer for 20 minutes
  3. serve over polenta, boil water and slowly stir in the polenta to desired consistency I like it like mashed potato – takes only 5 minutes!
