easy healthy halibut

Halibut is a delicate white fish with a great source of high quality protein, omega-3 fatty acids for cardiovascular health, magnesium for increased blood, oxygen, and nutrient flow throughout the body, and vitamin B. Pretty much it's a light delicate fish with a bushels-worth of benefits. With a delicate fish it's mostly important to let it shine and not overpower it. A quick & easy vinaigrette of lemon & olive oil brushed over the halibut kicks it up a simple notch.

Ingredients (for 2 servings):
1 lb halibut
2 tbs olive oil
1 tbs and 1 tsp fresh-squeezed lemon juice
salt & pepper

1. Preheat oven to 425F. Whisk olive oil with lemon juice, mix in a large pinch of each salt & pepper.  

2. Line a baking sheet with foil. Lay halibut skin-down and sprinkle with a bit more salt & pepper. Drizzle half of the vinaigrette mixture over the fish evenly. Pop in preheated oven for 14 minutes.

3. Remove from oven when flaky and done. Drizzle remaining vinaigrette over the fish. Serve with rice pilaf and red pepper flake green beans for a bit of a kick.
