Found it! Halibut Provencal: Fast and Easy delish
      09/24/06 08:31 PM

OK, I've been looking for this forever. I used to make it and just LOVED it, but it had gone the way recipes sometimes do...lost in the kitchen. But recently I kept thinking, that was a delicsious easy recipe and I know it's safe for a lot of folks. You could experiment with ingredients. I think you could leave out the green peppers if you had to. People should know about it! So tonight I buckled down and searched for the little Betty Crocker magazine (I'm addicted to those darned things that you can buy by the checkout stand) and found it! I promis you will love it and feel very elegant and yet it's simple and rather homey. THIS is a fish recipe to love:

Halibut Provencal

2 Tbsp olive oil (you could definitley reduce this to at least 1 Tbsp.)
1 medium onion, cut into thin wedges
1 green bell pepper, cut into one inch pieces
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups quartered unpeeled (or if you want to lower IF peel) small red potatoes
1 lb. halibut steaks or fillets cut into 1 inch pieces (this is very NON fishy fish)
2 cups sliced fresh Italian plum tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup sliced ripe olives (I usually left these out)

1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium high heat until hot. Add onion, bell pepper and garlic; cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes or until tender

2. Add potatoes; mix well. Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook 8 to 12 minutes or until potatoes are almost tender, stirring occasionally. (cut them smallish, they will cook better).

3. Stir in halibut, tomatoes, basil and salt; cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork and sauce is of desierd consistency, stirring occasionally. Stir in olives.

This is very chunky stew like with not a lot of sauce, just what comes from the tomatoes. Have with crusty french bread and grapes.
