My family loves fish so much and we eat it at least once a week. We love baked salmon dishes such as Maple Mustard Baked Salmon or even baked plain with just seasoning salt. When I saw this lemon garlic halibut, I knew we would love it too. I like this recipe because it’s healthy, easy and very tasty.
In this recipe, the halibut fillets are first marinated in a lemon-garlic based marinade. It is then baked in the oven for 20 minutes. Finally, it is topped with some fresh chopped tomatoes and parsley. The result is delicious and flaky fish perfectly complimented by the smoky lemon–garlic sauce. We even enjoyed the leftovers- when the fish has had more time to marinate in the delicious lemon-garlic sauce. Yum!
