* FOR THE FRESH TOMATO RELISH:
*1 large vine-ripened tomato, cored and finely chopped
*2 tablespoons finely diced yellow or white onion
*1 tablespoon chopped chives
*5 green olives with pimentos, such as Spanish Manzanilla, chopped
*1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

* FOR THE HALIBUT:
*4 (6-ounce) skinless halibut fillets
*Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
*1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions
1To prepare the fresh tomato relish, combine tomatoes with their juices with the remaining ingredients, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside and let stand at room temperature.
2Season the halibut with salt and pepper.
3In a large non-stick skillet, heat 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil until shimmering. Add halibut and cook over moderately high heat until seared on the bottom, about 7-8 minutes. Flip the fillets and add butter to the skillet. Spoon the butter over the fillets as they cook, 3-4 minutes more.
4Transfer halibut to plates and top with tomato relish. Serve immediately.
