I wasn't sure how my kids were going to take to fish, but not only did they both eat it, my son asked for seconds! I took them to the local fish store with me and showed them the different fish. We chose halibut.

This recipe is super easy, quick, and healthy. More importantly, everyone liked it!

Baked Halibut with Pesto

Ingredients

  • 4 4-ounce skinless halibut filets, patted dry with a paper towel before putting in dish (ask them at the fish counter to remove the skin)
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice or 1 lemon fresh squeezed
  • ¼ tsp. salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup pesto (I bought prepared but feel free to make your own.)

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 9x13-inch baking dish.

Arrange fish side by side in dish.

Salt and pepper the top of the filets.

In a small bowl, combine oil and lemon juice. Pour mixture over each piece of fish.

Bake until just opaque in center, about 10 minutes.

Lightly spread pesto on top of each piece and cook another 2-3 minutes or until fish is cooked through.
