Grilled Halibut with Mediterranean Flavors

We're advised to follow more of a Mediterranean-style diet for good health, which is fine by me because we find the flavors so agreeable. :)

The clean flavor of halibut is mild and the meat is firm; people who may not particularly like fish
usually find they don't mind halibut. I love almost all fish, and halibut is one of my favorites!

You don't really need a recipe, I just improvise this kind of dish by starting with the fish, then put myself into a Mediterranean frame of mind and think of the elements indigenous to that part of the world for the flavorings in the sauce.

I thought a vinaigrette would be good with the grilled fish (this would go well with other types of fish as well).
I made a basic red wine vinegar vinagrette, with very little extra virgin olive oil & heavy on the vinegar. If you find the vinegar flavor too strong you can dilute it with a little water.
I did not add salt to the vinagrette, only fresh chopped oregano and black pepper as the capers, even when rinsed, are salty.

As you can see, I halved some sweet cherry tomatoes then tossed them in the vinaigrette.

After that it is just a matter of plating the grilled fish and spooning the Tomato-Oregano vinaigrette over all. I garnished with additional fresh oregano leaves for additional flavor and color. It's equally good served immediately hot from the grill, or at room temperature as a salad.

If you try this I hope you like this as much as we do.
Have a Healthy and Delicious day. xo ~m
