I prepare fresh halibut fish so it remains moist and flavorful. I also offer a great topping that will perk up those taste buds.

Lemon Baked Halibut Recipe


  • 1 lb. halibut fillets, washed and patted dry
  • olive oil (or melted butter)
  • 2 lemons
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • cayenne pepper, optional


PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil (easy clean up!). Spray foil with oil.

Drizzle fillets with olive oil and juice from 1 lemon. Season with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper (if using).

Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until the fish flakes when tested with a fork.

Bacon Fish Topping

Yes, this fish topping has bacon in it!


  • 1 bacon strip, cooked when fish bakes, drained and cut into very small pieces
  • 3 TBS unsalted butter (if salted, you don't need to add extra salt)
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder (more overpowers flavor, unless you love it)
  • pinch of salt


Mix well in a small bowl and keep in the refrigerator until the fish is ready to be served. Then dollop on top of each fillet. If you do this with a small cookie scoop, the presentation is beautiful.

Serve with mashed potatoes (or even better) loaded mashed potatoes. Frozen sweet peas would be great addition too.
