This is a great way to prepare halibut in a matter of minutes! Halibut is not a budget-friendly fish, but it is a delicious fish with mild flavor and a firm, flaky texture. Watch for sales; it is well worth a splurge! Or you could easily sub out the halibut in this recipe for some wild cod ;)

Did you know... Halibut is rich in various nutrients such as selenium, magnesium, phosphorus potassium, vitamin B12, niacin, vitamin B6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids.

Pairs well with steamed broccoli or a colorful side salad.
Adjust serving size: 


  • 5 oz wild halibut - or similar white fish
  • 1/4 teaspoon avocado oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika omit for AIP
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper omit for AIP
  • 1/4 lemon sliced

How to Make:

  1. Preheat broiler and place the rack in the upper level of the oven – about 6-8" from the heat.
  2. Rinse and dry the halibut, and then place it onto a baking sheet. Tip: If there is any brown color on the fish, I like to cut that part off as it tends to be a little fishy in flavor - that's just my flavor preference.
  3. Coat the fish with avocado oil, then sprinkle the paprika, salt & pepper over the top.
  4. Place the fish in the broiler and broil for about 8-10 minutes - or until the fish begins to flake apart.
  5. Plate and top with a squeeze of lemon.
