Seared Halibut with Zucchini Noodles


I will admit I will use jarred pasta sauces in a pinch. Last night Bill and I returned from a little getaway and I had to go into the office for a few hours. Normally I will make my own from this recipe but will buy this in a pinch.

You won’t need much sauce for the recipe so when you have time, it’s really worth it to make your own and use the extra for other recipes.  Next time I make this, I plan to make it a little more mediterranean and add capers and kalamata olives. Be on the lookout for that recipe!

Serves 4

1-1/2 lbs halibut, portioned into 4 pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 medium zucchini
1 cup tomato marinara sauce

  1. Pat the halibut dry and set aside.
  2. Spiralize the zucchini. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat until shimmering.
  3. Add the zucchini noodles and toss lightly for 1 minute. Add the sauce and toss to combine. Cover with the lid and turn the heat to low.
  4. In another skillet, heat the remaining oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the halibut and sear on each side for 90 seconds. Return to the first side and cook until flaky, 2-3 minutes, turning once.
  5. Remove the zucchini noodles from the skillet and place on a plate. Lay the seared fish on top and serve.
