SBcanning has another fish recipe to offer you-and this is my very favorite which is Halibut-a white fish, caught in cold water areas, has firm meat, and very few bones; just need to purchase the lower part of the fish or steaks (de-boned).

  • Add tomatoes, and with a potato masher, break up the tomatoes into bits. Bring tomato mixture a boil and reduce heat to a simmer.
  • Let cool in refrigerator for as long as 3 days, if you wish to make ahead. Freezes well too. While tomatoes are simmering prepare wild rice. (follow instructions on back of package).
  • Cut fillets in serving portions, and place into sauce. Spoon sauce over the fillets. Cover and simmer for another 8 minutes or until the halibut is flaky. While fillets are simmering-let wild rice cool. To serve, place bed of wild rice on colorful plate and gently place halibut in center with tomato sauce over top of it.
