Halibut With Citrusy Tomatoes and Capers

This heart-healthy dinner will be ready in 25 minutes.  If you’re not a fan of halibut, or the store just don’t have any, pick another firm-fleshed white fish.  If you’ve never used capers, they’re found near the pickles and add a salty flavor to dishes.  Add a whole-wheat roll and you’ve got dinner for 4.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 tablespoon plus one teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup parsley
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 6-ounce pieces skinless halibut

What you’ll do:

  • Heat one tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add the garlic, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Add the tomatoes, orange juice, chopped parsley, capers, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  • Simmer until the tomatoes begin to burst, about 4-5 minutes.
  • In another pan, heat the remaining teaspoon of oil over medium-high heat.
  • Season the fish with 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper.
  • Cook the fish about 3-5 minutes on each side.
  • Serve with the tomatoes.
