I am so excited to share this Baked Halibut recipe with you.

Why? Because I’m pretty certain this is very quickly going to be one of your favorite healthy (and so, so tasty) dishes. 

That’s not me making a bold claim, but that’s me telling you that this recipe tastes crazy good and super easy to make. 

Baked halibut is one of those dishes you order from a high-end restaurant and leave right after telling the waiter “my compliments to the chef” and then maybe trying to convince the staff to tell you exactly how your dinner was prepared. 

Yup, it’s one of those recipes, and you can make it at home. It’ll be on your table in 35 minutes – start to finish. 

Can you use other filets of fish?

Sure you could. Salmon would work well. Even scallops. 

But see, halibut takes on flavor really well. Because of its own mild flavors, the ginger, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and vegetables complement this particular fish really well. 

Halibut is also packed full of protein, potassium, and vitamin D. It’s an easy and delicious way to get those healthy vitamins and minerals in for the entire family.

What’s with the parchment paper?

There’s a purpose, I promise. Parchment paper helps seal your fish. So while it bakes in the oven, it’s also steaming. This produces juicy, tender, flaky fish that won’t dry out. 

Next time you’re grabbing some seafood to cook, reach for the halibut because seriously, this recipe won’t disappoint. And let me know how much you loved it in the comments below!
