Pippa Middleton’s Halibut with Roast Tomato and Herb Dressing

From Pippa Middleton’s Heartfelt: Over 100 Quick and Easy Recipes for a Healthy Heart, try the tasty and tender halibut. The fish is a light and subtly flavoured contrasting with the tangy and colourful roasted tomatoes and herbs.

Makes: 4 servings || Takes: 30 Minutes


4 dry-packed sun-dried tomatoes

1 small red onion, finely sliced

2 tsp red wine vinegar

2½ tbsp olive oil

4×180g halibut steaks

200g cherry tomatoes, quartered

25g flat-leaf parsley, chopped

25g basil, chopped


In a small bowl, cover the sun-dried tomatoes with boiling water and leave to soak for 20 minutes, then drain and chop.

Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6. Place the sliced onion in the vinegar and leave to infuse.
Place the halibut steaks on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment. Brush the fish with half a tablespoon of the olive oil and roast in the oven for 10–15 minutes, until the fish is starting to flake and is just cooked.

In a small saucepan, gently warm the remaining oil, then add the sun-dried tomatoes and cherry tomatoes until the cherry tomatoes start to soften. This should take about 5 minutes.

Add the infused onion and vinegar and continue to cook for a further 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in the herbs. Serve the sauce warm, and spooned over the roasted fish.
