GETTING READY
1. In a small bowl, using a spoon, mix the salsa ingredients to blend everything. Refrigerate, covered, until used.
2. In another bowl, mix lemon juice with oil, cilantro, pepper, and zest and refrigerate, covered, for 2 hours for the marinade flavor to blend well.
3. Arrange fish in a baking pan, pour the chilled marinade evenly over it, and refrigerate, covered for 20 to 30 minutes to absorb the flavor.
4. Preheat oven to 400°F.

MAKING
5. In a flameproof saute pan, cook, covered, fennel with peppercorns in water on high heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until just tender. Add more liquid, if required. Take off from heat and keep aside.
6. Bake chilled, marinated halibut steaks for 5 minutes or until they turn white and flaky.

SERVING
7. Arrange fennel in 6 plates in equal portions, top with halibut followed by 1 tablespoon of salsa.
