How To Pick A Good Halibut

The best way to tell if halibut is ready to eat is by looking at its color. The meat should be firm and show no obvious signs of rotting or discoloration. When buying steaks or fillets of halibut, eyes that are shiny and clear are a good sign that there is little or no skin on them. Because they are closest to the head, the top two-thirds of the fish are usually the most tender. The soft meat near the tail is often tough, but it doesn’t taste bad if it’s cooked right or in a mild sauce.

Is Oven Roasted Halibut Keto Friendly?

Halibut has a good amount of omega 3 fatty acids and is high in protein, which makes this Oven Roasted Halibut Recipe a perfect choice for a KETO diet!

Ingredients That You’ll Need:

  • Olive oil – For our marinade, we’d like the oil to have a neutral taste.
  • Lemon juice – Fresh lemon juice squeezed by hand! This is not just best, it’s essential.
  • Spices – Smoked paprika and red pepper flakes.
  • Garlic – You can use as much or as little as you like.
  • Seasoning – Salt and pepper.
  • Herbs – Dried dill and chopped fresh parsley.
  • Fish – Today, we’re going to use an entire filet of Halibut.
  • Tomato – To be used as a garnish on our finished dish, diced and fresh.

Can I Use Frozen Halibut?

This Oven Roasted Halibut Recipe is suitable for using frozen halibut. Flash freezing halibut immediately after capture extends the fish’s shelf life and makes it suitable for freezer storage.

How Important Is It To Marinate?

It’s important to marinate! Not only does it let the flavor get into every bite of fish, but it also softens the meat chemically before we even chew it. I let the fish marinate for about an hour, but anywhere between 30 minutes and two hours should be fine.

Recipe Tips

  • It’s important to have fillets that are all roughly the same size so they cook evenly and don’t dry out.
  • In the same vein as other fish, halibut is better when cooked just little underdone rather than over. Since halibut lacks oil, it dries out more rapidly than other fish.
