Braised Halibut Steaks

This fish dish was flavorful and easy to make. All you have to do it chop up a couple items and throw it in the crock pot. I did cook it for a little bit longer than the recipe stated, and I served it with 1/2 cup of brown rice. I found this recipe in The Italian Slow Cooker cookbook.

Serves 6
2 large tomatoes
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp dried oregano (I used fresh)
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp unsalted butter
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
6 thick halibut steaks (2lbs total) or other white fish steaks
Salt and pepper

Cut the tomatoes in half lengthwise and cut out the stem ends. Squeeze the tomatoes gently to extract the seeds. Chop the tomatoes and place them in a bowl; there should be about 2 cups. Add the parsley, lemon juice, oregano, and salt and pepper to taste.

In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the oil, butter, and garlic. Cook on high for 1 1/2 minutes, or until the garlic is fragrant. Stir the garlic mixture into the tomatoes.

Arrange the fish steaks in slow cooker. Spoon on the tomato mixture. 

Cover and cook on low for 1 1/2 hours, or until the fish is just cooked through. Serve hot.
