  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels; set aside.
  2. Cook onion in hot oil in a large skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add eggplant, bell pepper, garlic, rosemary, and ¼ teaspoon of the salt. Cook for 10 to 12 minutes more or until the vegetables are very tender, stirring occasionally. Remove mixture from the skillet and keep warm.
  3. Add about 1 inch of water to the same skillet. Add a steamer basket and bring the water to boiling over high heat. Sprinkle the halibut steaks with the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt and the ground pepper. Add the halibut to the steamer basket. Cover and steam over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until the fish flakes when tested with a fork.
  4. Arrange a bed of spinach on four serving plates. Place the halibut and eggplant mixture on the spinach. Serve with baguette slices.
