Quick recipe for halibut. Light and fresh pan-fried fish served in a summery vegetable broth. Using orzo, the short pasta makes it more satisfying.



  • olive oil
  • shallot 1, diced
  • vegetable stock 600ml (or enough to cover the veg)
  • summer veg 300g, shredded Savoy cabbage etc.)
  • small pasta 50g like orzo or campanelle
  • halibut or other sustainable white fish 2 fillets, approx 100g each
  • butter 2 tsp


  • Step 1

    Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan, fry the shallot for one minute, add the vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Add the veg (except the peas) and pasta. Simmer for 5-8 minutes until the greens have softened a little but the pasta still has bite. Add the peas during the last minute.

  • Step 2

    Season the halibut and heat the butter in a frying pan. Fry for 2 minutes on each side until golden, the fish starts to flake and is cooked through. Season and divide into shallow soup bowls. Add the halibut.
