Roasted Halibut and Zucchini With Butter Sauce

Source: Everyday Food, September 2003

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless halibut fillet, cut into 4 equal pieces
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 pound zucchini, cut diagonally into 3/4-inch slices
  • 1 tablespoon onion, minced
  • 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) chilled butter, cut into 8 tablespoons
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Pat halibut dry; rub with 1 teaspoon oil, and season with salt and pepper. Arrange fillets several inches apart on a 10-by-15-inch rimmed baking sheet.

  2. In a small bowl, toss zucchini with remaining teaspoon oil; season with salt and pepper. Arrange zucchini around fish on sheet. Roast in oven, rotating sheet once, until zucchini is cooked through and fish flakes easily, 10 to 12 minutes.

  3. While fish roasts, combine onion, vinegar, wine, and 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; simmer until almost all liquid has evaporated, 5 to 7 minutes. Reduce heat to low; whisk in butter, 2 tablespoons at a time, letting each addition melt before adding next. Stir in parsley; season sauce with pepper. Spoon butter sauce over halibut and zucchini; serve immediately.

    This was delicious!!! I did make some substitutions based on ingredients I already had around the house- like I used Haddock instead of Halibut, red wine vinegar instead of white wine vinegar and omitted the white wine. Still super yummy!!! My husband was walking around the house trying to figure out what else he could put the butter sauce on. lol. This recipe was quick, easy, and tasty. Perfect for a weeknight when you don't have a lot of time or energy to make dinner.

    I made this for dinner last night and the sauce was divine! I skipped the zucchini as I had other vegetables on hand. I would make this again in a heartbeat.
