Quick, easy, and delicious! Low carb, high flavor. The fresh basil, tomatoes, and balsamic beautifully complement the halibut. I serve on a bed of brown rice.

  • Arrange halibut on prepared baking sheet and bake until lightly browned, 4 to 6 minutes. Flip fillets, season with salt and black pepper, and continue cooking until flesh is opaque, 1 to 2 minutes more.

  • Top each fillet with a mozzarella cheese slice, a basil leaf, and a tomato slice, respectively; repeat layers.

  • Return halibut to oven and bake until cheese begins to melt, about 2 minutes.

  • Whisk balsamic vinegar and olive oil together in a bowl; soon over halibut portions. Garnish with chopped basil to serve.

I really wanted to love this because I am a fan of anything caprese but unfortunately this wasn't a winner for us. I thought the cheese was heavy for the delicate fish and I wasn't a fan of the cooked basil. The basil became a little bitter. The fresh sprinkled on top was much better. I also did one layer instead of two because it would have been way too much for the thickness of my fish. Read More

I made this recipe exactly as described and it turned out great. My husband who is not much of a fish eater consumed his piece with minimal grumbling. Read More
