One of our big goals this year is to eat healthier, get back to a healthy weight and to exercise more. That required a major overhaul to our menu and we had to find new foods to eat that were better for us and still tasted good. A lot of the recipe ideas we looked at had fish as a main dish. We love eating fish and know that it can be healthy for you if you get the right kinds. When we were at Walmart shopping for some of our weekly groceries, we were looking at the frozen fish and found Alaska Seafood Halibut Fillets. Seafood from Alaska is wild-caught and never farmed so I knew it would make a great addition to our menu. I also grabbed some fresh green beans, rice, lemons and garlic to make this meal. It was SO EASY!!! It really only took about 10-15 minutes to cook everything and it tasted like we had just eaten at a fancy restaurant. All of my kids loved it as well, so this recipe is a win and I wanted to share it with you!
The day before you plan on eating the Halibut, take it out of the freezer and opening the packaging and put it into a baggie or container with the following marinade. Let it sit for about 24 hours or until thawed, marinating.
Recipe for Marinade:
- 2 tbsp of oil
- 1 tbsp of lemon juice
- 1 spoonful of garlic
- 1 tbsp of garlic and herb seasoning
- pinch of salt
Mix all ingredients together in the baggie/container and add the frozen halibut fillet. Seal the bag/container and mix it around to make sure the fillet is covered. Put into the fridge and let thaw for about 24 hours. When you are ready to cook your fillet, take a 8″ frying pan and put it over med/high heat and add about 2-3 tbsp of oil. Let it heat until you can see the smoke and then add the fillet. You will have a lot of grease splatter, so use a splatter screen if you can. You will cook the Halibut for a few minutes on each side, making sure the internal temp reaches 145 degrees. While the Halibut was cooking, we took another 8″ pan and added a handful of green beans and 2-3 tbsp of butter and some garlic and herb seasoning and sauteed them over med/high heat. Stir occasionally so they cook evenly. You will want to cook the rice accordingly so that it is done about the time our green beans and fish are done cooking.
Once the rice, green beans and Halibut are done, you will want to plate them right away so they don’t cool. I added a couple slices of lemon and some parsley for garnish. It turned out amazing and was easy to cook. The quality of the Halibut made all the difference. Alaska is home to some of the world’s highest quality seafood, including nearly 60% of the wild seafood and more than 90% of the wild halibut and salmon harvested in the U.S.. We could tell a difference in this meal because we got some of the best Halibut in the world with Alaska Seafood.
Eating healthier isn’t always easy, but with great meals like this on our menu, it gives me something to look forward to. Halibut is low in fat, carbohydrates and cholesterol, and an excellent source of lean protein and essential minerals. We love the sweet delicate flavor and flaky texture. You have to try this for your next meal! Look for the logo on the bag that says Alaska Seafood, and you will know that you are getting quality seafood for your meal.
