mediterranean halibut w/ spinach & couscous

The pure Mediterranean flavor of cooked olives, tomatoes and capers is a tough one to beat. Cooked on top of halibut? Scrumptious.

Halibut is a mild, firm and low-fat fish. To keep this high-protein, low-fat fish moist, I broiled the halibut with me favorite Mediterranean-inspired “relish” on top. And, it worked great. The juice from the chopped cherry tomatoes, capers and canned olives kept the halibut (complete with a splash of olive oil, salt and pepper) moist and tender.

I served this Mediterranean-style halibut with sauteed spinach, mushrooms and garlic and a side of colorful Israeli couscous for the kids. Within 30 minutes, this tasty meal was on the table.
