Baked Wild Halibut Steaks

An Italian-style vegetable and feta cheese topping is the perfect enhancement to this delicious, light, baked halibut. The herbs and tomatoes will make you think it's summer!

Ingredients:1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 cup diced zucchini
1/2 cup minced onion
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
2 cups diced fresh tomatoes
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 (6 ounce) wild caught halibut steaks
1/3 cup crumbled imported Greek feta cheese

Directions:1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly grease a shallow baking dish with extra virgin olive oil.
2. Heat the extra virgin olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat and stir in zucchini, onion, and garlic. Cook and stir 5 minutes or until tender. Remove saucepan from heat and mix in tomatoes, basil, salt, and pepper.
3. Arrange halibut steaks in a single layer in the prepared baking dish. Spoon equal amounts of the zucchini mixture over each steak. Top with feta cheese.
4. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until fish is easily flaked with a fork.
