15 Healthy Halibut Recipes

Are you looking for new and exciting healthy halibut recipes? Halibut has such a mild flavor helping it pair well with so many different flavor combinations. Also there are so many incredible and yummy ways to prepare this nutrient dense protein. 

My husband just returned home from a fishing trip and filled our freezer with halibut. Halibut is an excellent source of lean protein.

I am always looking for new recipes and since I just posted a round up of baked salmon recipes, I thought it was time to add one with halibut recipes.

What If I’m not in love with Seafood?

Halibut is a healthy, lean protein and is a perfect choice for those who aren’t in love with seafood because it has a very mild, sweet flavor. It doesn’t have a super fishy flavor which will typically make people shy away from seafood all together.

How Much Protein is in Halibut?

Good Source of High-Quality ProteinOne serving of cooked halibut packs 42 grams of high-quality protein and thus can help meet your dietary protein needs (1). The Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) for protein is 0.36 grams per pound or 0.8 gram per kilogram of body weight.

Things to Look for When buying Halibut

If you don’t do any halibut fishing in your family, it is easy to find at the grocery store.

When purchasing fresh fish always ask to smell it first. It shouldn’t smell fishy at all and that’s how you know you’ve got a fresh, good piece. If you’re using frozen fish, be sure to use it as soon as it is thawed.

I know halibut isn’t a cheap fish to find, so you can substitute these recipes with another firm white fish, if you prefer. Try cod, haddock, fluke, flounder, turbot or even tilapia.

Tips for Cooking Healthy halibut recipes

Because halibut is lower in fat content, it is very easy to overcook! Frozen halibut is even easier to overcook, so watch your fish very closely while cooking. You do not want dry fish!

Take the fish off the heat as soon as it turns white. As soon as it can be flaked with a fork, it’s done.
