Here’s a quick and easy white fish recipe for meal prep.  When the budget allows, I enjoy incorporating fresh halibut into my diet. It’s less fishy, very fleshy, succulent and satisfying.  It does not dry out quickly like other white fish such as cod.

Pair this with a complex carbohydrate like sweet potato or yam, or pile on some mashed avocado for a high energy treat.

Lemon & Herb Halibut Recipe

Ingredients

Ingredients for 5 servings

  • 1 1/2 lb raw wild halibut
    • Substitutes: wild cod
  • spray olive oil
  •  Seasonings
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
    • 1 teaspoon cumin
    • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
    • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano, chopped (or your favorite herb)
    • 1 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1 teaspoon cracked pepper
Steps
  1. Set oven to 400F.
  2. Place the halibut on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  3. Spray the fillet with a little oil then add the seasonings.  Gently massage the seasonings into the flesh.  If desired, place thin lemon slices on top.
  4. Bake in the oven for 6 to 8 minutes, until the fish is completely white, then place the oven on broil for no more than 2 minutes to brown/sear the top.  Remember, it doesn’t take fish as long to cook as chicken or beef and the risk of over cooking and drying it out is a real possibility, so it is important to monitor your fish while it cooks.
  5. Season to taste with sea salt, pepper and fresh lemon juice.
