This is great served over rice or couscous. The flavors in the ingredients compliment the halibut beautifully. I have used this with many mild white fishes and found they all are great with these ingredients.

This recipe is something that I would expect from a high end restaurant....and paying a high end price!!! Wonderful flavor, with the olives and capers. If your are going to dress up Halibut, do use this recipe! Excellent!!!

this is similar to a Greek dish that I have had in the past, I was going to use a different kind of fish but decided on the halibut and I'm glad I did, this dish is absolutely wonderful, it has all of my favorite ingredients, I increased the capers, used a small onion in place of the shallots, and also added in 2 tablespoon fresh garlic when frying the onion, I also increased the chili flakes way up, served with pan potatoes, what a great Sunday dinner for DH and myself, thanks for sharing ChicagoRN will make again soon!... oh forgot to mention I also used the clams, I just couldn't omit them! :)
