  1. Make the salsa. Using the Food Processing Attachment fitted with the knife blade, chop the basil, tarragon and coriander. Add the onion and coarsely chop. Add the tomatoes, and using the pulse action, coarsely chop. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. Add the garlic, lemon rind and juice, capers and half the olive oil. Mix together and set aside for 30 minutes to infuse.
  3. Season the halibut steaks with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Heat the remaining olive oil in a heavy based frying pan and cook the halibut steaks for 2-3 minutes, per side, or until just cooked through.
