While halibut can make eating healthy a cinch, it’s just as easy to get into a halibut rut as you would any other source of protein (chicken being a prime example). The following recipes take full advantage of a quick broiling method of cooking while still delivering flavor.

Cheesy Halibut

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon light mayonnaise (not dressing)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • Salt, to taste
  • Hot sauce, to taste
  • 1 pound halibut fillets divided into 4 portions

Directions:

Preheat your broiler to high and lightly grease a broiler pan with cooking spray. In a small bowl, mix all of the ingredients together (except the fish) with a fork. Lay out the fillets on the greased pan and cook the fish under the preheated broiler for 7 to 8 minutes. Top each fillet with an equal portion of the cheese mixture and then broil the fish for 2 to 3 minutes more. Make sure that you keep a close eye on the fish and topping to make sure it doesn’t burn! Remove the fish from underneath the broiler and serve immediately.

 

Classic Lemon Pepper Halibut

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry basil
  • Handful of fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 pound halibut fillets divided into 4 portions

Directions:

Preheat your broiler and grease broiler pan with cooking spray. Place the halibut on the pan, seasoning both sides with salt and pepper. Mix together the rest of the ingredients in a saucepan and heat on low until the butter melts and the garlic becomes translucent. Brush each fillet with the mixture and then broil the halibut for 7 to 10 minutes (depending on thickness). Once it flakes easily with a fork, remove the fish and serve with slices of lemon.
