 ¼ cup water
 2 tbsp capers
 2 tbsp caper juice

In a medium sized pan, add 1 tbsp olive oil, garlic, and shallots. Heat on medium heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add cherry tomatoes and cook while stirring for another 2 minutes. Add Stokes Green Chile Sauce Vegetarian, capers, caper juice, green olives, cherry tomatoes, and juice from the lemon. Allow to cook until it thins out into a sauce. And keep warm on very low heat.


In a skillet, add 1 tbsp of olive oil and get hot (if the pan is not hot enough the halibut won’t sear properly). Once hot, add halibut and sear for about 3-4 minutes. Flip and add the Veracruz style sauce to skillet along with ¼ cup water. Simmer until halibut reaches 145 degrees. Serve each piece halibut with sauce topped with chopped parsley.
