Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, carrots, zucchini, and garlic. Season with Calizo Italian Seasoning and  salt and black pepper, to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the veggies become soft and fragrant, approximately 4-5 minutes

Step 2

Add the wine and gently scrape any brown bits off the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon. Stir to combine and simmer for approximately 2-3 minutes.

Step 3

Add the chopped tomatoes and fish stock and bring to a rapid boil, then reduce heat to medium low. Cover pot and gently simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20-25 minutes.

Step 4

Uncover and add the chopped halibut and fresh green beans. Cover and continue cooking until the fish is flakey and the green beans are slightly tender, approximately 8-10 minutes.

Step 5

Add lemon zest and juice and stir in fresh parsley. Remove from heat and season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired

Step 6

To serve, top each serving with a tablespoon of pine nuts.
