Easy Marinara-Poached Halibut
2 tsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/2 tsp fennel seed
16 oz canned marinara sauce (I like Hunt's Basil Garlic Oregano in 8 oz cans- lower sodium- no added sugar)
1/2 cup water
1 lb fresh halibut, skinned
1/4 cup fresh chopped basil
Salt and fresh ground black pepper
In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add minced garlic and fennel seed. Saute until fragrant, ~ 3 minutes. Add in marinara sauce and water and bring to a simmer. Sprinkle halibut with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low, stir in basil, then gently place halibut filets into the sauce. Scoop sauce over the top to cover.
Cover saucepan and cook until fish is opaque and easily flakes, ~ 10-15 minutes.
Serve 4 oz of fish covered with marinara.
