    Halibut recipes can be hard to find. One of the main reasons is that halibut is expensive. I get it! Luckily for me, I had a co-worker visit Alaska for a fishing trip and he brought back a ton of halibut and salmon.

    Even when I don’t have fresh freshly caught fish in the fridge, I do splurge and buy halibut fillets at the store just for this recipe.
    Many people are intimidated by preparing fish at home.

    They are concerned about food poisoning or think it doesn’t taste the same as in a restaurant. So, how do you bake halibut? Just the same way you’d bake anything else. Most baked halibut recipes are the same, don’t put the oven too high for fear of drying your fish out, but high enough that it cooks all the way through.

    The moment you start seeing a white, milky substance, your fish is done, take it out. How long you bake your halibut will depend greatly on the thickness of your filet. Generally speaking, take it out when the thermometer reaches 130-135 degrees.

    Colorful dishes, such as healthy baked halibut, are easy on the eyes, but also packed with vitamins and nutrients. It has also been known to turn non-fish eaters into liking seafood. White wine, citrus undertones, dill and sweet bell peppers pair wonderfully with the mild fish flavor of halibut.

    If halibut is too expensive, I have substituted salmon, however salmon has distinctly different taste that can be seen as “fishy”. If you choose to substitute another fish, aim for a light taste and a thick, dense fish (NOT mahimahi, tilapia or grouper).

    Tools for making Baked Halibut:

    Ingredients
    • 24 ounces halibut fillets , cut into 4 fillets
    • Cooking Spray
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • Salt and pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
    • 3 tablespoons fresh dill
    • 3 scallions whites only, thinly sliced
    • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
    • 1/2 cup red bell pepper diced
    • 1/2 cup yellow bell pepper diced
    • 1/2 cup orange bell pepper or green bell pepper diced
    • 1/2 cup white cooking wine
    • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
    • Lemon wedges
    Instructions
    1. Heat oven to 400 degrees and prepare all ingredients in separate bowls.
    2. Rinse fish and pat dry. Spray a deep, glass rectangular baking dish with cooking spray.
    3. Place fish, flesh side up in glass dish, push together as if one continuous fillet. This allows the other ingredients to hold better on top.
    4. Pour lemon juice over fillets followed by salt and pepper seasoning, lemon zest and dill.
    5. In layers, place scallions, tomatoes and then mix of bell peppers on top of the fish. Pour white cooking wine in the bottom of the dish (not over the fish). This will allow the fish to steam and not dry out while baking.
    6. Cover with aluminum foil and allow to sit for 5 minutes before placing in the oven. Cook covered for 10 minutes. Remove aluminum foil, just barely separate each fillet so they can cook evenly on the sides, place back in over for 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
    7. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over bell peppers and return to the oven until melted (2-3 minutes).
    8. Plate and serve with lemon wedges.
