Halibut in Acqua Pazza

Active time: 15 minutes Total time: 25 minutes

Fish cooked in acqua pazza or “crazy water” is a light Italian dish featuring firm white fish fillets poached in a flavorful combination of tomatoes, white wine and garlic. To check fish for doneness, insert a steak knife into the center of a piece of fish and count to 4. Remove the knife and feel it; the fish is still rare if the knife is cold, it’s done if the knife feels warm or hot.

White fish, like halibut, is often overlooked for its omega-3 fatty acid content, because fish like salmon and tuna provide omega-3 in large doses. White fish can provide up to 500mg of omega-3’s per serving (salmon generally provides upwards of 1,000mg). Some omega-3’s are better than none, so include white fish in your diet with the knowledge it does provide some omega-3’s, which are beneficial for heart health.
