Grilled Halibut with red pepper and tomato sauce


This is a healthy and light dish. Fillet of Halibut is marinated in herbs,garlic and white wine then grilled to perfection and served just like that or with sweet red pepper sauce on top .You can use cilantro or parsley instead of rosemary and basil.

For 2-4 fillets pieces
1 lime or lemon squeezed
1 tablespoon chopped basil
1 1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary(about 2 sprigs)
3-4 garlic cloves
3 tablespoons white wine
salt and pepper
olive oil

Using a mini blender combine all the ingredients except olive oil.
Place fillets in a bowl and pour marinade over.
Let it marinade for at least 30 minutes.

Before grilling, apply olive oil to both sides of the fish.
Grill about 5 minutes each side.
* to make sure fish wont stick to the grates spray a non stick cooking spray or brush  olive oil on the grates.

1red sweet pepper ( I used cubanelle ) diced
2 small-med  tomatoes blanched diced
1/2 cipollini onion finely chopped
1 elephant garlic clove or 3 regular garlic cloves finely chopped
1 teaspoon fresh basil finely chopped
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and fresh ground pepper.

Using a saute pan; heat olive oil on medium heat.
Add onions and garlic.Cook them for about 2 minutes.
Add peppers. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Add tomatoes and basil.cook for 3 minutes and add cream.
Cook the sauce for about 3-4 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper.
Puree the sauce using a mini or hand blender.
Pour the sauce over the fish.

* My kids like to add this sauce on pasta.
