Make Tomato Confiture: Heat a small skillet over medium-low heat. Add mustard, coriander, cumin, and red pepper flakes to pan. Toast in warm pan for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until fragrant. Set aside. Add tomatoes, brown sugar, sherry, orange juice, onion, shallot, garlic, tomato paste, and orange zest to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer. Add toasted spices and let simmer until vegetables soften and sauce begins to thicken, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat; season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and keep warm.
Make Potato-Wrapped Halibut: Using a mandoline or very sharp knife, thinly slice potatoes. Place potato slices on a clean work surface and slightly overlap. Place brined fish on overlapping potato slices and wrap tightly.
Place a skillet over medium heat. Add potato-wrapped halibut to pan and cook 3 to 4 minutes. Add butter, rosemary, and asparagus spears to pan. Flip fish. Cook 3 to 4 minutes on second side, spooning butter over halibut, until fish reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees. Remove fish from pan and serve with warm Tomato Confiture.
