This is a recipe for pan-roasted halibut with cherry tomatoes. It’s quick, healthy and delicious. You’ll forget you are actually at home and not eating in a restaurant.

This dish will really make you wonder why you don’t make fish more often. The halibut its tender and moist and the roasted tomatoes with the wine sauce just elevate flavors even more.

This is a perfect dinner for those watching their weight. It’s high in protein, low in carbs, and most importantly, high in flavor. I often serve this dish with a side of polenta or fresh greens salad. Enjoy!
