Baked Halibut with Romesco Sauce

Halibut in Roasted Romesco Sauce over Pasta.

Now that was a fabulous meal.  I sampled Romesco Sauce recently and fell in love with it.  I immediately added it to my ‘must make soon’ list and am so glad I did.  The best way I can describe this sauce is as roasted red pepper pesto.  It’s nutty, with big bold flavors and is so versatile.

The final step in making Romesco Sauce is to oven roast it for 15 minutes.  What a perfect chance to nestle a nice piece of halibut in the middle of the sauce and let them roast together.  The sauce is thick and will love a ‘grabby’ pasta (one that holds onto the sauce).  We served ours over rotini with a little shaved Parmesan and it was perfect.  Halibut in Roasted Romesco Sauce…we’ll be seeing you again.
