Baked Halibut with Sundried Tomato & Olive Tapenade

You might remember when I shared my recipe for Sundried Tomato and Olive Tapenade a couple weeks ago.  It’s a delicious spread that takes about five minutes to whip together with your immersion blender.  While tapenade makes a beautiful (and effortless) appetizer or addition to sandwiches, there are so many other great ways to incorporate this flavorful spread into  your meals.

I love using halibut for this recipe.  Well, actually, halibut is one of my favorite types of white fish, and I love it for a lot of different recipes.  It’s thick, meaty, flaky, and similar to other white fish it’s pretty mild.

The only downside is that halibut can be a little pricey.  With that in mind, you can easily substitute any other white fish, like red snapper, tilapia or cod.  Just keep in mind that if you buy a thinner cut of fish (like, tilapia), you’ll need to decrease the cooking time.

Baked Halibut coated with Sundried Tomato and Olive Tapenade is great served over thinly sliced and roasted fennel, or alongside roasted Brussels sprouts.

This reminds me of the most delicious dish I made during culinary school–halibut topped with a sun-dried tomato, walnut, and olive tapenade and pan-seared. It was to die for! Have to try your version.

I also have my eye on that caramelized fennel….yum!
