I thought I would continue the week's fish theme today! When it comes to eating fish, I prefer those that are delicately flavored. I always choose a white fish over something like salmon, and my favorite is halibut. I never cared for fish as a child, and to this day do not prepare it often enough, but this very simple recipe for Baked Halibut with Lemon and Capers may convince me to make fish more often. The dish comes together quickly, oven bakes in mere minutes, and is ready to eat as soon as it comes out. Then there is the added bonus of the light lemony sauce, slightly salty from the capers, that you can spoon over the fish and whatever starch you serve (it is divine over mashed potatoes). If you love fish, or even if you don't, this recipe is worth trying!
Baked Halibut with Lemon and Capers
1 T. fresh lemon juice
2 T. olive oil
2 Tsp. capers
2 8-oz. halibut fillets (thawed if frozen)
salt and pepper to taste
In a small bowl, whisk together the first three ingredients. Clean and dry the fish and place on a rimmed baking sheet covered with foil. Season with salt and pepper, then pour the dressing over. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes, or until the fish is opaque. Squeeze additional lemon juice over the fillets, if desired, and serve. Serves 2.
