Makes 4 servings


1 1/2 pounds halibut steak
1 teaspoon olive oil, preferably extra-virgin
Salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste
Salsa verde
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, preferably extra-virgin
2 tablespoons very finely chopped fresh parsley, preferably Italian flat-leaf
1 tablespoon minced shallots
1 1/2 teaspoons capers, rinsed and chopped
1 small clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste


To bake halibut:

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
  2. Set halibut on a large sheet of aluminum foil, drizzle with oil and
    season with salt and pepper. Bring together sides and ends of foil and
    seal into a tent, leaving an air space on top. Transfer tent to a large baking dish or baking sheet.
    Bake until the interior of the fish is opaque, 15 to
    20 minutes.

  3. Combine oil, parsley, shallots, capers, garlic, lemon juice and
    anchovy paste in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Divide baked halibut into 4 medallions. Spoon a little salsa verde
    on top of each portion and serve.

This is a very easy and versatile recipe that you can eat any day of the week and be full, or if you are going for a very light dinner or lunch, this would be perfect. I thought it was very easy to prep and if you don’t like anchovy paste, just leave it out and use salt instead(lightly). I look forward to hearing if you tried this recipe or not. Thanks for taking a look and hope you are having a fabulous week.
