Oven-Baked Greek-Inspired Halibut

Oven-Baked Greek-Inspired Halibut

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!

I love using Fish Fixe when cooking at home to keep premium seafood in my freezer at all times! You can use my code DEFINEDDISH to receive $15 off your order. (affiliate link)

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.

    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.

    This looks delicious! Would chicken work in place of fish? I have noticed our local grocery store does not provide great fish selection.

      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!

    Can’t wait to try! How long will this keep once cooked?

      I like to keep cooked fish for only 2-3 days personally.

    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.

    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!

    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!

      Hi Kristen!
      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!

        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!
