Halibut Picante


From EatingWell:  March/April 1999, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Fish cookery doesn’t get any easier than this. Look for the freshest fish you can find—just about any firm, mild white fish will be a fine foil for this spicy tomato sauce.

4 servings | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes



  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Arrange fish on baking sheet. Season with 1/2 teaspoon cumin, salt and pepper.
  2. Combine tomatoes, olives, cilantro, oil and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cumin in a small bowl. Spoon over the fish.
  3. Bake the fish until flaky and opaque in the center, 12 to 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
