Halibut is one of my favorite fish – it’s mild flavor pairs with virtually any seasoning, and the texture stands up to flavors both delicate and bold. It is rich in micronutrients such as selenium, which is a powerful antioxidant that also helps decrease inflammation and is key for thyroid health. Halibut is also a great source of niacin, phosphorus, magnesium, and vitamins B12 and B6. It’s also a great source of quality protein. I typically buy Kirkland Wild Alaskan Halibut filets, which come individually shrink-wrapped and frozen in 2-pound bags. I love the convenience of having these delicious filets on hand at all times!
Adding a simple seasoning blend, lime juice, and butter completely transforms this humble white fish. Simple blend the seasonings, cover the filets evenly, and bake until done. Finish with the lime juice and butter and you’re done! The butter is optional, but I think it’s a perfect savory addition to the flaky mild fish. This is lovely paired with any vegetable side dish (I like the color that broccoli adds to the plate). Enjoy!
