Your New Favorite Fish: Best 5 Halibut Recipes

Check out Food Network's top-five recipes for halibut, a roundup of deliciously easy-to-make meals from some of your favorite Food Network chefs.

Easy to make and widely available, salmon, tilapia and cod are often touted as go-to picks for family-friendly fish dinners, but if you’re looking to dress up your usual seafood selection, try a new favorite: halibut. A mild white fish that’s firm and meaty in texture, halibut stands up well to bold flavors and ingredients, plus it can be cooked in a number of ways and is quick enough to prepare on busy weeknights.

Whether you opt for a simple, light marinade of olive oil and lemon juice or prefer a more adventurous fillet with spices, herbs and sauces, there’s a halibut preparation to please every taste. Check out Food Network’s top-five halibut recipes below for easy dinner inspiration and a mix of can-do dishes that will impress your family and party guests alike.

You don’t have to wait until grilling season to master Rachael’s next-level fish sandwich. She sears the fillets on a stovetop grill pan, then serves them with juicy tomatoes, cool lettuce and creamy tartar sauce on hearty rolls.

The key to pulling off Giada’s restaurant-worthy plate is having each element of the dish ready as you need it. Set aside the zesty butter and focus on sauteing the shallots until golden brown, then cook the fish for just a few minutes and assemble the components to create an elegant yet easy dinner at home.
