Halibut Recipe with Asparagus (Baked in Parchment)

This easy halibut recipe is quick to prepare and makes a healthy, super delicious dinner the whole family will love!

Meet your new favorite easy dinner recipe! I’ve made this halibut recipe once a week for the last month. Whether you’re the biggest fan of fish, or feel kind of meh about seafood, you’re going to love it.

Here’s why I’m so confident you’re going to love this halibut recipe whether you typically love fish or not: my picky husband raved about it (he does not hand out compliments about food easily) AND the kids both liked it. Can we all agree that’s something to get excited about?!

There are only a few kind of fish I like, and halibut is by far my favorite. It’s so mild and has great texture.

Have you ever baked fish in parchment paper? It’s not only a super healthy way to cook fish, it also makes it ultra-flavorful. For this halibut recipe I baked the halibut filets and asparagus in a parchment paper packet with some lemon and a mustard-dill sauce. All of those flavors get absorbed into the fish and vegetable as it steams inside the parchment paper. It’s SO delicious!

Tim and I just eat the halibut and asparagus right from the parchment. The kids, however, get a little overwhelmed with that presentation, so I learned to take theirs out of the parchment before serving it to them.

They are really used to eating salmon, but I hadn’t made halibut at home much until recently. I wish I had sooner as they both like it! I hope you’re whole family loves it, as well.
