Ingredients
  • Caponata:
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus extra for seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus extra for seasoning
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped
  • 8 ounces frozen artichoke hearts, thawed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes, with juices
  • 10 pitted kalamata olives, halved
  • 3 tablespoons raisins
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and drained
  • Halibut:
  • 4 (4 to 5-ounce) center-cut halibut fillets, about 1-inch thick
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf Italian parsley, for garnish
Directions

For the caponata: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and season with salt and pepper. Cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the celery and artichoke hearts and cook until soft and the artichokes are lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the tomatoes, olives, and raisins to the pan. Simmer over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until the mixture thickens, about 25 minutes. Stir in the vinegar, sugar, and capers and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

For the halibut: Place a nonstick grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill. (If not using a nonstick grill pan, lightly oil the pan before grilling the fish. The halibut can also be roasted for 10 to 12 minutes in a pre-heated 400 degrees F oven.)

Drizzle the halibut on both sides with olive oil. Season on both sides with salt and pepper. Grill until the flesh flakes easily with a fork, 3 to 4 minutes on each side.

Arrange the halibut on a serving platter and top with the caponata. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve.
