Recipe by Lizzie Rodriquez

From most recent book. Haven't tried. Butter beans, a smaller cousin of lima beans, add a decidedly creamy texture to this dish. If you can't find butter beans. use limas instead. We prefer vine-ripened tomatoes, sold in most supermarkets, as they tend to be juicier than the average beefsteak type. To save time, ask the fishseller to skin the halibut fillets for you.

  1. Heat the oven to broil.

  3. Stir in tomatoes and peas; cover and cook 4 minutes longer.
  4. Stir in beans, cover and cook 2 minutes longer. Remove pan from heat and leave covered to keep warm.
  5. While ragout is cooking, place halibut fillets on a broiler pan, season with salt and pepper and brush with remaining 1 t oil. Broil until opaque and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes.
