Number of Servings: 4


    1.5 c dry wine or chicken broth (this est for broth); 1c water; 1 medium yellow sweet pepper, chopped; 3Tbsp drained capers; 4 cloves garlic, minced; 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper (or more to taste); 4 halibut steaks (1.5lb approx) - or cod or other whitefish; salt and fresh ground pepper to taste; parsley for garnish.


1. For poaching liquid, in a large skillet combine wine (broth), water, sweet pepper, capers, garlic, and crushed red pepper. Bring to boiling, reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. Place fish in a single layer in the poaching liquid in the skillet. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon liquid over fish. Return to simmer. Cook, covered, 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness of fish until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove fish to serving platter. Spoon or pour cooking liquid into a small serving pitcher. Sprinkle with fresh parsley. To serve, place fish in individual serving bowls, pass remaining broth. Makes 4 servings.

(note, you can drizzle the cooked fish with approx 2 Tbsp basil or olive oil - the original recipe called for this, but I have removed it from this version to reduce calories)
