Broiled Halibut Caprese Recipe

Broiled Halibut Caprese

Serves 4
Broiled halibut topped with sliced ripe tomatoes, Metropolitan Market Fresh-Stretched Mozzarella, and fragrant basil makes for a gorgeous summer dinner.


  • 1 sheet (12 x 18 inch) aluminum foil
  • 4 halibut steaks or fillets (4 to 6 oz each)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 8 oz Metropolitan Market Fresh-Stretched Mozzarella, cut into slices
  • 8 large fresh whole basil leaves
  • 2 medium tomatoes, each cut into 4 slices
  • 3 Tbsp Metropolitan Market Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Metropolitan Market Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil, chopped


  1. Preheat broiler/oven to medium-high (450°F). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly oil foil.
  2. Place halibut on foil and broil about 5 inches from heat source for 4 to 6 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  3. Turn fillets over and season with salt and pepper. Broil an additional 1 to 2 minutes, just until fish is opaque throughout.
  4. Remove halibut from oven and layer 2 slices cheese, then 2 basil leaves, and 2 slices tomato over each portion. Return halibut to the oven and broil an additional 2 minutes, until cheese begins to melt.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together balsamic and olive oil. To serve, spoon dressing over fillets and garnish with chopped basil.
  6. Serve immediately or hold at room temperature for an hour. Excellent with a green salad and Italian or French bread for an easy summer dinner.
