Alaska Halibut Caprese

Ingredients

1 sheet (12” x 18”) aluminum foil
4 Alaska Halibut steaks or fillets (4 to 6 oz. each), fresh, thawed or frozen
Salt and pepper, to taste
8 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 8 slices
8 large fresh whole basil leaves
2 medium tomatoes, each cut into 4 slices
3 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1-1/2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil

Directions

Preheat broiler/oven to medium-high (450°F).  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat with nonstick cooking spray.

Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Halibut under cold water; pat dry with paper towel.    Place halibut in pan and broil about 5 inches from heat source for 4 to 6 minutes, or until lightly browned. 

Turn fillets over and season with salt and pepper.  Broil an additional 5 to 7 minutes for frozen halibut OR 1 to 2 minutes for fresh/thawed fish.  Cook just until fish is opaque throughout. 

Remove halibut from oven and layer 2 slices cheese, then 2 basil leaves, and 2 slices tomato over each portion.  Return halibut to the oven and broil an additional 2 minutes, until cheese begins to melt. 

Blend balsamic vinegar and oil.  To serve, spoon dressing over fillets and garnish with chopped basil.
