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 ingredients 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!

Ingredients:

  • Halibut Fillets
  • Grape Tomatoes
  • Shallot
  • Kalamata Olives
  • Lemons
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Garlic
  • Fresh Oregano
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Crumbled Feta Cheese: Omit for Paleo and Whole30

Step-by-Step:

Step One: Preheat the Oven

Preheat the oven to 375℉.

Step Two: Place the Fish and Veggies in the Baking Dish

Place the halibut filets in an oven-safe baking dish. Scatter the tomatoes, shallots, olives and lemon over and around the fish filets.

Step Four: Season the Fish, Bake, and Serve

Sprinkle the top of the fish with salt, pepper, and feta cheese. Transfer to the oven and bake until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork, about 20 minutes, (depending on the size of your halibut filets). Halibut should flake easily with a fork when done.

    Just made this for dinner. Absolutely exceptional flavour, SO delicious! Looks really beautiful as well. Thank you for this fabulous recipe that will now be made on repeat! Best halibut recipe.

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.
