Cut halibut into 4 equal portions. Season halibut with Italian Seasoning and garlic powder.

Place pan with halibut in preheated oven and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
Heat a medium-size pan over medium to medium-high heat. Spray pan lightly with oil. Add fennel and minced garlic to the pan and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
