This easy-to-share pasta dish is simple to prep and a snap to make. The halibut and fusilli recipe features fresh ingredients like sweet cherry tomatoes, baby arugula and Brussels sprouts, along with halibut and pancetta making it a colourful and flavourful meal.
Slice pancetta into half-inch pieces. Over medium heat, cook pancetta in large sauté pan until it begins to brown and render. Add garlic, cherry tomatoes and olive oil and cook until they begin to blister and burst.
Add pasta to boiling water and cook fusilli according to package instructions.
Add halibut to pan; lightly season with salt and sauté over medium heat, turning pieces over for 3 to 4 minutes until lightly browned and just cooked. Fish should be flaky and fork tender.
Roughly chop pistachios and thinly slice Brussels sprouts, removing root ends.

Drain cooked pasta and add to sauté pan; gently stir in chopped parsley and a pinch of salt. Add pepper to taste. Drizzle with olive oil and garnish with extra parsley leaves.
