Rosemary Thyme Halibut Over Wilted Spinach Salad, Baked Potatoes and Asparagus

Written by


One of the great things about spring and summer time is that a lot of amazing seafood comes into season, Halibut being one of them! This dish may look complex as it has three different components to it, but it will blow you away with how easy it is to prepare while also being undeniably good!

-Halibut is low in saturated fat and sodium

-Spinach is a good source of vitamins and protein

-Asparagus is high in fiber and also a good source of vitamins

For two portions you will need:

  • 2 six ounce portions of Halibut
  • 6-8 ounces of potatoes
  • 6 big sprigs of asparagus
  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • 3-4 mushrooms
  • 6-8 ounces of spinach
  • Thyme
  • Rosemary
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Olive Oil

How to cook:
First things first, get your oven warmed up by setting it to 350. Slice your potatoes into bit sized pieces and cut off the rough end of your asparagus. Line a Pyrex baking dish with aluminum foil (it will make it easier to clean afterwards) and toss in your potatoes and asparagus. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, thyme and rosemary. Put them in your oven and let them start to bake, they will take about 30 minutes, so this will give you some time to get the remainder of the meal prepped and cooking.

Next we season our Halibut with thyme and rosemary, set aside until they are ready to cook. Prep your cherry tomatoes by slicing them into halves or thirds. Slice your mushrooms as well. After this is complete, give your potatoes a look, make sure to toss them a bit so they cook more evenly. Are they starting to get soft? If not, wait for a little bit. If so, awesome, its time to start cooking your halibut! Put some olive oil down in your pan and turn it up to medium high heat. Make sure to let your pan and your oil heat up! We want to get a good sear on the outside of the fish. Lay your halibut portions down in the pan and they should cook for about 3-4 minutes per side, depending on how thick your portions are! In a separate pan, drizzle some olive oil and get your mushrooms cooking as well. Medium heat should be just fine. Just after you flip your halibut go ahead and toss in your spinach and tomatoes with your mushrooms along with a quick drizzle of balsamic vinegar. As your halibut finishes, your spinach will be ready and your potatoes will be perfectly cooked as well!
