BAKED GREEK HALIBUT
- 4 small or 2 large halibut filets (16 ounces total)
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- ¼ cup kalamato olives, torn in half
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- ½ lemon, juiced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoon fresh herbs (eg. oregano, mint, dill, or basil)*
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- ½ lemon, thinly sliced
- ¼ cup feta
*Note: if you don't have fresh herbs use 1 teaspoon of dried herbs.
- Preheat the oven to 400°F
- Place the halibut filets in a baking dish and scatted the halved cherry tomatoes and kalamato olives over the top.
- Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, dijon mustard, and fresh herbs. Pour the mixture over top of the fish.
- Sprinkle the salt and pepper over top of the fish.
- Add the thin slices of lemon on top of the fish and then sprinkle on the feta.
- The length of time required to bake the halibut filets depends on the thickness of the filets. Ours were thicker and took 25 minutes. Small fillets make take only 15-20 minutes. You can check the internal temperature of the halibut to ensure it reaches 130 to 135°F. The centre will be opaque (but not glossy or pink) and flake easily with a fork.
