I recently had the opportunity to interview Chef Wolfgang Puck for work. This recipe for baked halibut was the result of Chef Puck's suggestion for how to put together a tasty, quick and inexpensive main dish for dinner. He was absolutely right! Quick, delicious and inexpensive!
You could substitue swordfish or sea bass for the halibut.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
Pat the fish dry with a paper towel and season both sides with salt and pepper.
Add about 2 teaspoons of pasta sauce to the bottom of a baking dish.
Place the fish in the baking dish and top each steak with about 3 tablespoons of the pasta sauce.
Sprinkle the chopped olives over each piece of fish.
Drizzle the remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil over the fish.
Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
Garnish with pieces of fresh basil.
