Course: Main Course
Servings: 4 servings


  • 75 gr broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup (15 g) fresh bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp minced fresh sage
  • 1 1/2 pound (750 g) halibut fillets, in 4 equal pieces
  • 1/4 cup (25 ml) extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) fish stock
  • 1 tbsp (90 ml) fresh lemon juice


  • Steam the broccoli until just tender but still bright green, about 5 minutes. Refresh in cold water, drain, and set aside.
  • Mix the bread crumbs with half the sage and coat the halibut with this mixture.
  • Heat 3 tablespoons (45 ml) of the oil in a heavy nonstick skillet, add the fish, and saute about 5 minutes on each side, or longer if the fillets are very thick, until the fish is just cooked through.
  • Remove the fish from the skillet, transfer to a serving dish, and keep warm.
  • Add the remaining oil, the fish stock, and lemon juice to the skillet.
  • Stir in the broccoli and remaining sage.
  • Cook just long enough to reheat the broccoli, season with salt and pepper, then spoon the broccoli and sauce around the fish and serve.
