Halibut is one of my favorite types of fish, and I've eaten it many different ways (it would be delicious with the mango salsa recipe I posted a few weeks ago). This week I decided to try out something new, and since I loved how it turned out I wanted to share the recipe! I served it with an easy side of sauteed spinach for a quick, healthy, and delicious weeknight meal.
Roasted Halibut with Green Olive Relish (modified from one found in Paleo Magazine)
2 halibut fillets (about 1/2 lb each)
1 cup pitted and halved green olives
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon capers, drained
3 tablespoons of orange juice
3 tablespoons and one teaspoon olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
- Rub halibut with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper
- Roast at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until the fish flakes when you cut into it with a knife
- While fish is cooking, add remaining ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend / pulse until the texture is slightly chunky and looks like relish
- Top the fish with relish when it is done roasting
