To prepare the halibut, preheat oven to 300°F.Add the olive oil to a shallow baking dish. Place the fish fillets in the baking dish and turn to coat them. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon the wine around the fish. Bake until the fish just flakes, about 20 minutes.To prepare the sauce, place dried mushrooms in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave mushrooms to rehydrate (about 15-20 minutes). Begin this process while the fish is baking.Coat the bottom of a heavy bottom skillet with olive oil, sauté the shallots and chili flakes until soft. Add garlic and thyme and sauté for a few more minutes, however don’t let garlic brown.

Rough chop the mushrooms and add to the sauté pan. Pour the mushroom water into the sauté pan straining through a fine sieve or cheese cloth.When the liquid has evaporated by 1/3 add the tomatoes.
