Oven Roasted Halibut with Olive Oil & Meyer Lemon Zest

By Georgeanne Brennan
I love really fresh fish, simply prepared, with just a little olive oil. Meyer lemons, with a hint of sweetness, add a subtle taste to the finished dish. Alaskan halibut is a wonderful choice for this preparation.


    • coarse sea salt
    • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    • finely grated Meyer lemon zest
    • freshly ground black pepper
    • halibut fillets
    • Meyer lemon juice


    1. Preheat oven to 400° F
    2. Film a baking dish with about 1/3 of the olive oil.
    3. Season the fillets on both sides with the salt and pepper and place them in the baking dish.
    4. Drizzle with another 1/3 of the olive oil and put the baking dish in the oven. Roast the steaks until they are opaque and flake easily with a fork, about 15 minutes.
    5. Remove from the oven, drizzle on the lemon juice and the remaining olive oil, then sprinkle with the lemon zest.
