Baked Halibut with Salsa Verde

Halibut has a fairly neutral flavor, making it the perfect foil for this salsa verde—a traditional cold sauce made with fresh parsley, capers, lemon and anchovy.

Serves 4

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 25 min.


  • 1 1/2 pounds halibut steak
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoon very finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons capers, rinsed and chopped
  • 1 small clov garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste

Cooking Directions

Step 1

To bake halibut: Preheat oven to 300°F.

Step 2

Set halibut on a large sheet of foil, drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Bring together sides and ends of foil and seal into a tent, leaving an air space on top. Transfer to a large baking dish or baking sheet. Bake until the fish is opaque in the center, 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 3

To make salsa verde: Meanwhile, combine oil, parsley, shallots, capers, garlic, lemon juice and anchovy paste in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 4

Divide the baked halibut into 4 medallions. Spoon a little salsa verde on top of each portion and serve.
