Halibut Steak with Tomato and Garlic

I need some variety when it comes to white fish, I usually go for haddock but halibut makes a great alternative (although a little bit more expensive...but worth it). Halibut has a meatier texture but like all white fish it is great for cooking alongside lots of delicious flavours. See the recipe below.

Serves 2

2 Halibut steaks
About 25-30 cherry tomatoes on the vine
1 large clove of garlic, finely chopped
2 tbsp good olive oil
1 tbsp chopped basil
Salt and ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 190C

Keep about half the cherry tomatoes on the vine, as in the picture above. Remove the rest from the vine and cut into quarters. Place in a bowl along with the garlic, oil, and basil, and season with salt and pepper. Mix well.

Place the halibut steaks in a roasting dish and spoon the tomato mixture onto the top of the steaks. Place the remaining cherry tomatoes on the vine alongside the halibut.

Cook in the oven for 15 minutes.
