    1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/4 in (0.5 cm) rounds
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    4 - 4 oz (125 g) skin-on halibut fillets
    1/2 cup (125 mL) finely crushed toasted almonds
    Finely grated zest and juice from 1 orange
    1/4 cup (60 mL) finely minced Italian parsley
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) finely minced cilantro
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) finely minced chives
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) pure maple syrup
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) white miso paste
    1 tsp (5 mL) sesame oil
    Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).

    Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Place sweet potato slices in single layer on baking sheet and brush with 1 Tbsp (15 mL) olive oil. Lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake in oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until fork tender. Remove baking sheet from oven and place on rack; set aside.

    Increase oven temperature to 450 F (230 C).

    Lightly brush rimmed baking pan with oil. Arrange halibut fillets skin side down in single layer and brush with 1 Tbsp (15 mL) olive oil. Mix almonds, orange zest, and herbs in bowl. Gently press almond mixture evenly over fillets. Bake in oven for 8 minutes or until halibut is almost opaque in the centre.

    Meanwhile, combine orange juice, maple syrup, miso, and sesame oil in small bowl and whisk to blend. Add more miso to taste, if you wish.

    To serve, arrange several cooked sweet potato slices on 4 serving plates. Rest crusted halibut on top. Drizzle with miso maple syrup glaze.
