Baked Halibut Fillet

Halibut fillet in the oven

Those who have already tasted dishes made from halibut know how delicious and tender this fish is. And for those who have not had the opportunity to get acquainted with it in the culinary world, I propose an excellent recipe for cooking it - baked halibut fillet. The flavor of the fish is complemented by stewed vegetables, and the juice that comes out of the fish is so aromatic and tasty that you just want to dip a piece of white bread into it. Pure enjoyment, nothing else.

For the dish, I used skinless frozen halibut fillets. The fillets are covered with an icy glaze, so I removed the fish from the freezer in advance. To speed up the thawing process, you can place the fillets in a bowl and fill it with water. The ice will thaw faster from the fish, allowing you to proceed with the marinating process. Once the fish is completely thawed, handle it delicately to avoid breaking it. Rinse the halibut fillets gently and pat them dry with paper towels.

Cut the fish into pieces. If the fillets are small, you can cut them in half or leave them whole if they are very small. When marinating the fish, I recommend using a minimal amount of spices and seasonings. Ideally, it should be salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Halibut is a delicate and fatty fish, so overpowering it with excessive herbs is unnecessary. It's better to complement it with onions and carrots or make a sour cream sauce. I will show you two methods of cooking halibut fillets in the oven: halibut with vegetables in a parchment envelope and fish in a sour cream sauce, both with vegetables.

Slice a large onion or two medium ones into thin rings. I used a special grater to achieve thin rings, as it is difficult to do with a knife. Grate the carrot as thinly as possible as well. Why do we need to slice the vegetables so thin? Because the fish cooks quickly, about 20 minutes, while the vegetables may not be cooked yet. Therefore, I recommend making the slices as thin as possible. While we cut the vegetables, our fish pieces will be marinating with salt, pepper, and lemon juice.

Cover the vegetables and arrange pieces of butter. Why butter and not vegetable or olive oil? Because with this butter, the fish and vegetables will melt in your mouth and have a more creamy taste. Of course, if desired, you can replace the butter with vegetable oil, just spray the fish with it.

Cover the dish with foil and place it in the oven along with the envelopes. The cooking time for both dishes is the same - 20 minutes, and the temperature is also the same - 180 degrees Celsius.

If you need to serve the fish in sour cream sauce on a separate plate, you can do it differently with the envelope. Serve the envelope to your guests or family members and make a cross-shaped cut on it. The fillet will be in its own juices, the vegetables will be soft and flavorful. You can take out the fillet from the envelope and serve it with a side dish, simply unwrap the envelope.
