Pan Seared Halibut with Roasted Heirloom Tomatoes

I hope you are enjoying all my low-carb offerings and trying this lifestyle out for yourself! I am finding weight is coming off quite easily now, and I am in my 40s!

This recipe highlights beautiful Halibut and the flavors of end-of-summer tomatoes. It is simply sublime.

Pan Seared Halibut with Roasted Heirloom Tomatoes
Adapted from Aaron McCargo Jr.
Serves 4

2 tbsp coconut oil (can substitute grapeseed oil)
4 (6-ounce) halibut fillets
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp cracked black pepper
2 sprigs fresh thyme
1 lemon, sliced in half
¼ cup dry white wine
1 tbsp olive oil
1½ cups halved heirloom tomatoes
1 tsp chopped garlic
2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley leaves

In a large saute pan over medium-high heat, add the coconut oil. Season the fish with salt and pepper and add to the pan. Sear the fish for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Add the thyme, wine, a squeeze or two of lemon and simmer for 2 minutes. Then baste the fish with the sauce. Remove the halibut from the pan to a serving platter. Add the olive oil to the pan and stir in the tomatoes, garlic and a squeeze of lemon. Cook for 2 minutes and then add the parsley. Stir to combine and serve on top of the fish.
