For the Sauce:

  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 cup Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 ½ tbsp freshly minced garlic
  • 2 tsp dill weed
  • 1 tsp Real Salt, more for later
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • ½ to ¾ tsp ground coriander

For the Fish

  • 1 lb fresh green beans
  • 1 lb cherry tomatoes
  • 1 large yellow onion sliced into half moons
  • 1 ½ lb halibut fillet, slice into 1 ½-inch pieces


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the sauce ingredients together. Add the green beans, tomatoes, and onions and toss to coat with the sauce. With a large slotted spoon or spatula, transfer the vegetables to a large baking sheet (21 x 15 x 1 inch baking sheet, for example). Keep the vegetables to one side or one half of the baking sheet and make sure they are spread out in one layer.
  3. Now, add the halibut fillet strips to the remaining sauce, toss to coat. Transfer the halibut fillet to the baking sheet next to the vegetables and pour any remaining sauce on top.
  4. Lightly sprinkle the halibut and vegetables with a little more seasoned salt.
  5. Bake in 425 degrees F heated oven for 15 minutes. Then transfer the baking sheet to the top oven rack and broil for another 3 minutes or so, watching carefully. The cherry tomatoes should begin to pop under the broiler.
  6. When ready, remove the baked halibut and vegetables from the oven. Serve with your favorite grain, Lebanese rice, or pasta.


Mediterranean One-Pan Baked Halibut

You can make this baked halibut recipe any night of the week, it's easy and requires minimal cleanup (hello, sheet-pan dinner!) But, the secret to it's amazing flavor is, as they say, in the sauce!

Not surprising to you, the sauce is decidedly Mediterranean--lots of citrus, excellent extra virgin olive oil, fresh garlic, and a few spices. Both the fish fillets and veggies are quickly coated in this awesome sauce then transferred to a baking sheet. 15 minutes or so in the oven and dinner is ready!

How to Make this Halibut Recipe:

1. First, let's make the sauce by mixing in the ingredients in a large mixing bowl: zest and juice of 2 lemons, extra virgin olive oil, fresh garlic, seasoned salt, black pepper, dill weed (I use dry), oregano and coriander.

2. Toss the veggies in the sauce (I used green beans, cherry tomatoes and onions). Use slotted spoon to transfer the veggies to a large sheetpan (you'll need the rest of the sauce for the fish)

3. Now, do the same and toss the fish fillets in the sauce to coat.

4. Add fish to the sheet pan next to the veggies. If you have any sauce left, drizzle all over fish and veggies

5. Bake in 450 degrees heated oven for about 15 minutes or so. If you like, place the pan under the broiler for just about 3 minutes or so (I like the cherry tomatoes to pop a bit), watch carefully. That's it, dinner is ready!
