From Roasted and Grilled to Broiled and Steamed, These Are Our Favorite Healthy Halibut Recipes for Dinner
There are so many delicious ways to enjoy this versatile fish, as evidenced by our wide collection of recipes.
A marvelous, meaty option, halibut is more luxurious than inexpensive mild white fish fillets like tilapia, haddock, or catfish. Like most fish, halibut is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids (approximately 740mg in one five- to six-ounce serving!), plus magnesium and niacin. Like many types of seafood, halibut pairs especially well with citrus, such as our recipe for Halibut with Grapefruit and Rosemary, pictured here. The fish is broiled and served with a generous drizzle of an earthy grapefruit syrup.
Halibut is also a fantastic fish to use in a mixed seafood stew, soup, or salad that calls for white fish. Because it's meaty, it doesn't fall apart or overcook easily when cooked. It's a great option for an Italian-style cioppino that also features lobster, shrimp, squid, and cockles. With a delicate tomato broth and plenty of herbs, a superstar cioppino recipe will bring big flavor to the dinner table.
Halibut has a dense and firm flesh that needs little salt and pepper but stays intact when grilled. Because of this, it's one of our favorite fish to prepare during grilling season. Here you'll find simple but spectacular preparations of grilled halibut that you can serve alongside seasonal vegetables, roasted potatoes, or just delicious crusty bread.
For colder weather, we also have recipes for halibut that call for a slow-cooker or baking the fish in the oven in a casserole dish. No matter how you choose to prepare it, halibut delivers delicious flavor and a boost of nutrients to the table time and time again.
