Summer’s Heirloom Catch!

Parmesan Potato-Crusted Halibut with Heirloom Tomato and Zucchini

Have you ever come across a recipe that sounded so great that you just had to share it with your family and friends? Well Studded family today I have found that recipe. While looking through one of my many cookbooks, I came across a recipe that made my mouth water at the very site of the words… “Parmesan Potato-Crusted Halibut with Heirloom Tomato and Zucchini”. Doesn’t that sound just amazing?

First of all I think that heirloom tomatoes are absolutely beautiful and extremely flavorful. This week we are not focusing on heirloom tomatoes, but I just had to share a beautiful photo.

Heirloom Tomatoes

I have to admit that this time around I do not have all of the ingredients for this recipe readily available, so I am required to pay a visit to the market… One of my favorite places to be ;-).

Give this wonderful summer recipe a try and let me know how it turns out. I would love to hear your feedback!

Parmesan Potato-Crusted Halibut with Heirloom Tomato and Zucchini

2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
4 Tbsp instant mashed potatoes
1 Tsp dried thyme
Salt and pepper
4 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
4 (6 ounce) portions halibut fillet
8 Large heirloom tomatoes, chopped, or 2 pints organic cherry tomatoes, halved
¼ Cup chopped green onion
2 Cups diced zucchini
1 Bunch fresh basil, chopped
2 Tsp sherry vinegar

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a shallow bowl, combine Parmesan, potatoes, thyme, and salt and pepper to taste. Heat a nonstick ovenproof saute pan over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil. Coat 1 side of halibut with the potato mixture, pressing to adhere. Place fillets potato side down in the heated saute pan. Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside. When the potato is golden brown (about 5 minutes), carefully turn the fillets over and place the pan in the oven. Cook until almost done, about 5 minutes. Add the tomato-zucchini mixture to the pan, being careful not to cover the halibut. Continue cooking for 2 minutes, or until the halibut is just cooked.

Mmm take a bite out of that!
