Halibut with Dill Pollen and Tomatoes

This is probably, in my humble opinion, the steak of the sea. The flakiness and wonderful texture of the white meat as it peels off is delectable. I could eat this particular recipe at least once a month if not more. Guest that come over and try this are in awe at the amount of flavor that is produced with just a few pinches of dill pollen.
