Instructions Checklist

  • Rinse the fish and pat dry. Place on the greased pan, and brush with olive oil or coat with olive oil cooking spray. Squeeze the juice from the lemon wedges over the entire fillet, and season generously with salt first, then garlic and finally dill.

  • Broil for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the fillet is opaque and can be flaked with a fork. Broiling time may depend on the thickness of your fillet.

I made this last night with some fresh halibut and it turned out great. I did NOT use the full cup of olive oil as that seemed quite excessive. I maybe used about 1/4 cup which still was probably too much. I am thinking that is what makes this recipe 911 calories per serving. I cut up a 1.3 lb halibut fillet into 6 pieces and baked them in the oven at 375 degrees (F) for about 18 minutes. Read More

It was a good fast recipe but it was a little lemony and salty. I would use this recipe again but I would go a little light on the salt and lemon juice. Read More

This was appealing to me as it is unencumbered by lots of fatty, rich extras like cheese, mayo, sauces, etc. I baked this at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes, only because I am more comfortable with this method. I used fresh dill, freshly ground pepper and a sprinkle of paprika for color. You can't go wrong with this flavor combination of lemon, dill, garlic and olive oil, which for any fish is always a winner. Read More

I chose this halibut recipe over others because it didn't smother the pricey fish with ingredients. I used halibut steaks rather than fillets. It was simple and flavorful. I'll make again with slightly less salt. Read More

I used frozen halibut and cooked it according to the package instructions 375 degrees for 8-12 minutes. I juiced two lemons used two cloves of fresh garlic to replace the powder dried dill weed (didn't have fresh) and I added a teaspoon of melted butter plus about two tablespoons of olive oil. I placed all of the seasoning in a bowl and whisked it together. I then coated the fish with the seasoning placed it in a greased baking dish and poored the remaining seasoning over it. I served the fish with steamed broccoli and roasted garlic couscous. My two year old and husband gobbled it up. Quick and delicious! Read More

I would give it a five because it was AMAZING but not as written. 1 cup of olive oil?? That's GOT to be a mis print because that is just crazy. Used about 3 tbsps of olive oil a little extra dill and fresh garlic instead of powder got amazing fish from costco not frozen so that made it better but it was SO SO awesome. Yummy! Read More

I thought the olive oil was a bit excessive. I used just enough oil to coat the baking sheet and my halibut steak. For a little variation I put my halibut steak on some sauteed onions & fennel root. I also added a touch of fennel leaves & ground fennel seeds for a bit more flavour. Read More
