Citrus and Bay Leaf Infused Halibut

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Cooking fish has never been my specialty, but when I was a paleo chef in Los Angeles the most requested meal plans always included a fish dish. So, at one point, I spent several weeks perfecting a halibut recipe that proved to be delicious and always well received by anyone I share it with. In fact, it became the crowd favorite during my chef years.

New Call-to-action

The secret to this halibut dish is in infusing the oil with the citrus and spices first, then finishing the dish in the oven (a practice usually reserved for Indian-style cooking). Infusing the oil makes this a simple, elegant recipe that works with many combinations of fruit and fish.

Citrus and Bay Leaf Infused Halibut

So, have fun and experiment with this one — use your favorite white fish instead of the halibut and use whatever citrus you have on hand — the only limit is your imagination.
