Baked Halibut in Tomato and Orange Sauce

Andes Premium Catch sent me a complementary bottle of wine and a whole North Atlantic Halibut from Greenland last week! It was a kind gift Jiayi prepared for me and that I REALLY appreciated! I ate the whole thing myself for lunch! Yes, I did not share it with anyone this time. This halibut was way too good for sharing :D…I like to be selfish sometimes 😉

Here is the recipe of how I have cooked it. Very simple and healthy.

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 1 whole Halibut fish (about 800 gr), gutted
  • 200 gr peeled tomatoes in can
  • 1/2 orange
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/4 cup green olives
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Chop up the onion
