Halibut w/Fennel Puree

Serves 4

1 fennel bulb, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
2 teaspoons cilantro, chopped
10 Tablespoons olive oil
1 tomato
Juice of 1 lime
1 teaspoon dill, minced
1/2 cup olive oil
4 halibut filets
Salt and pepper
Dill sprigs for garnish

Fill a small saucepan about 3/4’s full with water. Bring to a boil.

Make an x with a paring knife on the bottom of the tomato, cutting just through skin.

Fill a large bowl with ice and cold water. Place tomato in boiling water for 30 seconds and then immediately transfer to ice water. Peel, seed and chop tomato.

For fennel puree:
Place fennel and carrot in a steamer over simmering water and steam for 30 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat and transfer to a food processor. Add cilantro and puree all. Stir in 2 tablespoons oil and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together 6 tablespoons oil, tomato, lime juice and dill, until emulsified. Season to taste with salt and pepper; set aside.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add 2 tablespoons oil. When hot, add halibut filets. Cook on each side until browned and meat is opaque throughout.

To serve:
Spoon 1/4th of tomato-oil mixture on each plate. Place a filet on top of sauce and a scoop of fennel puree next to filet. Garnish with dill and serve.
