CREOLE HALIBUT BITS
2 pounds halibut, cut into 1" squares
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
3 tablespoons cooking oil
1/2 cup green bell pepper, chopped
1 bay leaf
1 16-ounce can whole tomato, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Tabasco to taste
Lightly grease a 9 Ã— 9 baking dish with margarine. Place cubed halibut in baking dish, cover and bake in a 350Âº degree oven for 20 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
While fish is baking, prepare the Creole sauce. Cook chopped onion and minced garlic clove in cooking oil until yellowed. Add chopped green pepper, bay leaf, whole tomatoes (cut into bite-sized pieces), salt, pepper. Simmer uncovered for 20 minutes. May add Tabasco, as desired. When fish is done, drain off excess liquid. Pour creole sauce over halibut and serve hot.
