This Oven-Baked Greek-Inspired Halibut is a delightful and simple dinner that uses Greek-inspired ingredients to give it a delicious, fun flavor!
While halibut can seem like a “fancy” filet of fish, halibut recipes don’t have to be complex or time-consuming at all! A simple blend of flavors alongside the white, flakey fish is all it takes to have a perfect dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes!
Here, Greek-inspired flavors like kalamata olives, grape tomatoes, oregano, lemon and feta cheese pair beautifully with the halibut. All you have to do is layer the ingredients in a roasting dish and throw it in the oven. It comes out oh-so flavorful and couldn’t be easier!

Oven-Baked Greek-Inspired Halibut
- 4 [6-8 oz] halibut fillets
- 3/4 cup quartered grape tomatoes
- ¼ cup torn kalamata olives
- ½ lemon, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- juice of ½ lemon
- 2 cloves of minced garlic
- 1 tbsp of fresh oregano leaves loosely chopped
- 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp pepper
- ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese *omit for Whole30/Paleo
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Place the halibut filets in an oven-safe baking dish. Scatter the tomatoes, olives and lemon over and around the fish filets.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, and dijon until well combined. Pour the mixture over the fish.
- Sprinkle the top of the fish with the kosher salt, pepper and feta cheese. Transfer to the oven and bake until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes, (depending on the size of your halibut filets). Halibut should flake easily with a fork when done.

Made this for the second time tonight, and it came out perfectly both times. Skipped the feta this time (because we were out) and added a few capers and red pepper flakes before baking. Served with a mélange of white beans, asparagus, cauliflower, and artichoke hearts on the side. Quick, easy, and delicious — I predict this recipe will be on heavy rotation at our house from now on!

Hands down the best recipe I’ve found for halibut. Made it tonight for hubs and friend, they agree it’s a keeper! Delish! Thank you!

Glad this was a hit! Thank you for the review!

Excellent recipe, came out perfect! Thanks so much!

We followed the recipe exactly and it turned out amazing!! Reminded us of a dish from one of our favorite restaurants. We did angel hair pasta and roasted asparagus on the side. Delicious. Thank you for sharing!

The flavor around the fish was great, but there was so much liquid after cooking I think it kind of boiled my fish and it was actually chewy and bland. My fish was frozen but I fully thawed it and patted it dry but obviously not enough. Probably either need to purchase fresh fish or maybe try cooking the fish separately and then covering it with the baked tomatoes, olives and feta

oh – and I served it with Tabouli mixed with Couscous
LolitaJanuary 9, 2022 at 11:35 pm
I have made this recipe numerous times and it is delicious with so much flavor! My family loves this dish with risotto cauliflower rice.

It came out so delicious. My husband and I are food snobs, so we rarely find a recipe we don’t have to doctor up with seasonings. And living in Alaska, we eat halibut all the time. This is by far the simplest and most flavourful recipe I’ve found. Thank you. This is a keeper for sure.
AlexSeptember 6, 2021 at 12:47 pm
Thank you, Amanda! Glad you enjoyed.

I’m an avid home cook and this recipe is awesome. Made it the first time subbing the chilis with some other “cherry bomb” ones but the second time used the same ones in recipe. Second time around I also added a can of cannelloni beans and pine nuts, served over butter/parm noodles with cauliflower. Was outstanding.
AlexMay 27, 2021 at 5:03 pm
This looks delicious! Would chicken work in place of fish? I have noticed our local grocery store does not provide great fish selection.
AlexJune 2, 2021 at 12:09 pm
Hi! I think it would still be great with chicken– but the cook time would change and you’d need to ensure the chicken is cooked through!
Marian AminiMay 24, 2021 at 5:50 pm
Can’t wait to try! How long will this keep once cooked?
AlexMay 24, 2021 at 7:53 pm
I like to keep cooked fish for only 2-3 days personally.

This was so easy and delicious! Thank you for another family friendly dinner that made me look like a pro.
KatieMay 21, 2021 at 2:11 am
This was SO delicious!!! Prep was so quick and the taste was so so good. My fish was pretty thick so bake time was quite a bit longer but otherwise it was perfect.
Jamie StutesMay 16, 2021 at 12:41 am
This was definitely a family pleaser. Tastes like we were eating at a very fancy restaurant. Was absolutely delicious!
AlexMay 16, 2021 at 1:11 pm
Love to hear that! Thanks, Jamie!
Michelle SMay 12, 2021 at 8:47 pm
Wow! This looks amazing and fairly simple too. Can’t wait to try this. You always have the BEST recipes, Alex.

Thank you so much, Michelle! 🙂

Made this last night with haddock! So flavourful! Another delicious recipe from Alex!
AlexMay 12, 2021 at 12:15 pm
Thank you, Lynn!
AmandaMay 10, 2021 at 6:35 pm
I just signed up for fish fixe using your code. Could I use Mahi or Snapper here instead as that’s what I got in my box! Thanks Alex!
AlexMay 10, 2021 at 9:27 pm
amazing!! Both would work so great here, but i’d go with the snapper 🙂
AmandaMay 14, 2021 at 12:51 am
Ok update! Did the snapper and it was delicious! Great recipe!!! Thank you!

LindseyMay 10, 2021 at 3:43 pm
Alex – what do you suggest serving on the side with this dish?
AlexMay 10, 2021 at 4:17 pm
I love it with roasted asparagus or a simple side salad!
KristinMay 10, 2021 at 3:09 pm
This looks delicious! Will this work with Cod? Question with frozen fish. Can you cook them from frozen? And if not – how do you get rid of the excess water from thawing? Do you just gently pat the surface or really try, or do you press harder to get as much water out? I’ve had problems with my frozen cod lately so trying to figure out the right method!
AlexMay 10, 2021 at 4:18 pm
Cod would work great in this recipe!
For frozen fish– I always thaw completely, then I set them on a paper-towel lined plate and let them rest on that for about 10-15 mins prior to cooking– you’ll see so much water release and then, gently pat dry before roasting!
KristinMay 10, 2021 at 6:22 pm
Ah thank you!! I am probably not giving it enough time to fully thaw and rest as I always pull it out last minute and try and thaw it in the sink quickly. I Will plan better and hopefully your way will solve my fish problems!
