If you want a blackened look, sear the seasoned tops in a well greased skillet over high heat for about 1 minute before baking, and cut about 2 minutes off of the baking time.

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds halibut fillets (cut into 6- to 8-ounce portions)
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons Creole seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon paprika (sweet)
  • 1/2 teaspoons thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano

How to Make It

  1. Heat the oven to 400 F and position the oven rack in the center of the oven. Line a baking dish with foil and grease with olive oil.
  2. Wash halibut fillets and pat dry. Rub the fillets all over with olive oil and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
  3. In a shallow bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Dip the tops of the fillets lightly in the seasoning mixture, or sprinkle with the mixture if you'd like a more lightly seasoned fish.
  1. Place the fillets in the prepared baking pan, seasoned side up. Bake the halibut for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the fillets are cooked through ( a little less time if you sear the tops before baking).
