    In a colander, drain the tomatoes. Transfer to a 9x9 baking dish, drizzle with olive oil and season generously with salt. Toss lightly. Roast for 20 minutes, until tomatoes begin to caramelize.

    4 6-oz Halibut Filets
    1/4 cup Flour
    2 Large Eggs
    1 cup Pistachios (ground in food processor)
    Salt and Pepper
    Create a dredging station by placing three dishes in a row. One with flour, the next with the eggs, beaten lightly, and the third with the ground pistachios. Season each fillet with salt and pepper, then coat each side lightly with flour, then dip in egg. Allow the excess egg to drip off and then dip in pistachios to form a crust. Transfer to clean plate.

    3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, almost smoking, place fillets in oil, cooking in batches if necessary. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side.

    Basil leaves for garnish   
    Serve each fillet with roasted tomatoes. Garnish with basil.
