Baked Halibut Recipe

Prep: 5 min
Cook: 10 min
Total: 2h 15 min

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)
    • one teaspoon sea salt
    • 1 teaspoon cracked pepper


Step 1

Set oven to 400F.

Step 2

Place the halibut on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 5

Season to taste with sea salt, pepper and fresh lemon juice.
