Halibut w/ Cherry Tomatoes, Capers & Olives

When I start seeing halibut in my market, I know spring isn't too far away.

You West Coast peeps always have gorgeous Pacific halibut, but here on the East Coast, we only see it in the spring, and it is pricey $ (but we have better pizza and bagels than you do!).

Here, I made a simple marinade for this gorgeous fish, which also acts as a delicious sauce.

If you can't find nice halibut, then substitute cod or haddock.

This is great over linguine to mop up that delicious sauce.
