Fig, Chili, Fennel Baked Halibut

Baked Halibut. This simple preparation makes an ideal, quick dinner. The fig, chili and fennel create a pleasing balance of flavors to complement the richness of the halibut. Removing the seeds from the chilies reduces the heat while retaining the desired smoky flavor. Continue cooking until fennel softens, then add the butter. Once butter has melted and the fennel is caramelized, deglaze the pan with white wine and add fish stock. Bring to a light boil to reduce slightly. Remove halibut from pan, discard excess oil, and return halibut to pan browned side up. Cover with fennel mixture, add figs, and place in 350-degree oven for five minutes. Remove from oven, baste fish and fennel mixture with pan juices, then plate the halibut on half the fennel mixture and spoon the rest over the top.
