Pan Roasted Halibut w/ Parmesan Baked Asparagus

Roasted Halibut w/Parmesan Baked Asparagus & Herbed Potato Medley

Ok home cooks & foodies, This is a relatively easy recipe for a very delicious fish, Halibut!  You can use fresh or frozen, this is sure to be a hit at your dinner table.This no-fuss recipe is big on flavor and looks delicious on the plate. You can use halibut, cod, or haddock for this dish, it does not matter because they all work. I served it up with parmesan baked asparagus (recipe coming soon) and potatoes. Bon Appetit!


1 lb  halibut fillets (thickly cut)

2 Tbsp olive oil (divided in half)

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (you can use less if you can’t tolerate heat)

1/4 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp fresh cracked black pepper

1/4 tsp ground coriander

1/8 tsp brown sugar

1/2 tsp salt or to taste

pinch of dried parsley & oregano


Combine all the dry spices and mix well. Rinse the fish in cold water then pat dry. Brush the fish with half of the oil and season it generously with the spice mix. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put the remaining oil (or you can use a high heat non-stick spray) in a cast iron skillet or other heavy bottomed pan and heat over medium-high flame. Sear the halibut on one side for 3 minutes. Flip the fish and place the pan in the pre-heated oven for 5-7 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Plate the fish and served immediately. Enjoy:)
