A fresh-tasting dish that is easy to prepare and cooks in minutes

Yield: Makes 6 servings
Prep time: 10 Mins
Cooking time: 4 Mins


For the sauce:

  • 1 cup packed mixed herbs (parsley, chives, mint, tarragon, and chervil)
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp tarragon vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Sugar (optional)

For the fish:

  • 6 thick halibut fillets, about 5oz (140g) each
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


1. Process the herbs, oil, tarragon vinegar, and garlic in a blender until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. If it tastes slightly bitter, add sugar to taste. Transfer the sauce to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until serving.

2. Preheat the broiler or build a fire in an outdoor grill. Lightly brush each fillet with oil and season with salt and pepper. Broil or grill, turning once, about 4 minutes, until the fish is barely opaque when pierced with the tip of a sharp knife. Transfer to plates and serve, with the green sauce and the lemon wedges.
