large garlic cloves
pressed through garlic press
about 1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon
Sea salt to taste
Black pepper to taste
of olive oil
6 ounce skinless halibut fillets (you can ask your seafood department to cut it for you)
chopped for garnish
Lemon slices or wedges on the side
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
In a small ramekin, prepare the marinade/ seasoning by combining the pressed garlic cloves, Dijon, lemon juice and zest, the paprika, and a couple of good pinches of salt and pepper with a fork; add in the olive oil, 1 tablespoon at a time, and blend that in until combined
Place the halibut fillets onto the prepared baking sheet, and brush each fillet with the seasoning mixture (or pour directly over), and if you have a few minutes, allow the fillets to marinate for 10-20 minutes
Place the seasoned fillets into the oven and bake for 10 minutes; then, turn the broiler on, and allow the fish to broil for 2-3 minutes until it has a bit of color, and is tender, flakey and cooked through
To finish, sprinkle over some fresh dill, add lemon slices or wedges, and serve with your choice of side.
