Ingredients

1
head broccoli, cut into florets
3
yellow squash or zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch rounds
kosher salt and black pepper
4
8-ounce
skinless halibut fillets (about 1 inch thick)

teaspoons
extra-virgin olive oil
2
tablespoons
finely chopped fresh herbs, such as basil, flat-leaf parsley, or thyme (optional)
2
lemons, halved

Directions

  1. Place a steamer in a large saucepan. Add enough water to reach just below it. Bring to a boil.
  2. Add the broccoli and squash and steam, covered, until tender, about 7 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, season with ¼ teaspoon salt, and cover.
  3. If necessary, add more water to the pan. Return to a boil. Season the halibut with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  4. Place the halibut on the steamer, cover, and cook until it flakes easily and is the same color throughout, about 7 minutes.
  5. Drizzle the halibut and vegetables with the oil. Sprinkle with the herbs (if using) and serve with the lemon halves.
