7 Healthy Halibut Recipes

Halibut is one of the lower-cholesterol and -fat seafood options out there. A 3-ounce serving has about 115 calories, 22 grams of protein, 2.5 grams of fat and about 35 milligrams of cholesterol. With a flaky consistency and knack for holding together during cooking, it’s a great fish option for a variety of dishes.

Thai-Style Halibut with Coconut-Curry Broth (pictured above)

Ellie Krieger loves this restaurant-fancy dinner that’s unbelievably easy to make. For the broth, she uses light coconut milk, which has one-third of the fat and calories but the same amount of creaminess as the full-fat version.

Panko-Crusted Halibut with Swiss Chard

Halibut can be very simply prepared with a crunchy breadcrumb topping and served over a bed of sauteed Swiss chard.

Halibut with Tuscan Beans and Endive

With less than 500 calories per serving, this is a refreshing fish dinner that comes together in just 35 minutes.

Halibut Green Curry

Nestle halibut fillets on a bed of kale before cooking. The kale is full of lutein, which is part of the carotenoid family (responsible for yellow, red, and orange pigments in fruits and vegetables). It can provide us with antioxidant and immunity help, but it needs a little fat to be absorbed best by the body (and that’s no problem with this dish, as the coconut milk in the recipe will do the trick).

Broiled Halibut with Ricotta-Pea Puree

Use frozen peas and ricotta cheese to make this creamy puree that’s the perfect complement to flaky halibut.

Fish Tacos with Chipotle Cream

You can use halibut or tilapia for these tacos, which are a great alternative to beef or chicken tacos. They’re topped with a creamy Greek yogurt sauce, plus lettuce, corn and cilantro.

Mediterranean Halibut Sandwiches

You’ll be swapping tuna salad for halibut on the regular after making this recipe from Giada De Laurentiis. She bakes the fillets, then creates a filling with the flaked fish and mayo before adding spicy arugula, all between two pieces of ciabatta bread.
