Roasted Atlantic Halibut Fillet in an Herb Crust

1 1/2 lb Halibut fillet; cut into 4 portions
Salt; to taste
Freshly-ground black pepper; to taste
1 c Fresh white bread crumbs
1 c (loosely packed) Parsley leaves
2 Garlic cloves
2 tb Olive oil
1 c Chicken broth
1 Red pepper; stemmed, seeded,
And chopped
2 c Cooked lentils


Preheat oven 425 degrees. Season halibut with salt and pepper. To a food processor, add bread crumbs, parsley and garlic, and pulse until finely combined. Place fish on broiling pan and drizzle top and bottom with olive oil. Thickly spread bread crumb mixture over top of fish. Roast fish for 8 to 10 minutes. As fish roasts, place broth and red pepper pieces in sauce pan, and bring to a boil. Reduce and simmer until pepper is soft, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Pour into a blender and puree the red pepper sauce for 3 minutes until silky. Remove and pass through a fine strainer. Plate the fish on a bed of warm lentils and drizzle with red pepper sauce. This recipe yields 4 servings.
