Easy one-pan halibut recipe with cherry tomatoes and green beans that takes 25 minutes to make, baked in a Mediterranean sauce with fresh lemon juice, garlic, thyme, olive oil and spices.
This colorful dish is very simple yet so delicious to make. It is perfect for a quick week day dinner or even a family and friends’ gathering.
Halibut and vegetables tossed in a zesty citrus sauce, garlic, thyme, olive oil and spices and baked for 20 minutes is a Mediterranean delicacy that you must try.
I like the addition of coriander seeds to this dish, they just elevate the taste and complement the rest of the ingredients.
Why I Use Wild Alaskan Halibut
Wild Alaskan Halibut is one of my favorite fish to cook. I like its firm delicate texture, and subtle flavor which makes a great candidate for any seafood dish you can imagine, not to mention that it goes great with all sorts of seasonings.
Halibut flavor can be easily enhanced with herbs, sauces, simple citrus additions or even fruit-based salsas.
I prepared a Mediterranean sauce with this dish and a mango based salsa as an alternative.

How to Bake Halibut with Vegetables

Place the pan in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve warm.
