1/2 teaspoon turmeric

2 Tablespoons harissa (Moroccan paste)

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 teaspoons olive oil

4 Alaska Halibut steaks or fillets (6 to 8 oz. each), fresh, thawed or frozen


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix all dry ingredients in a small bowl. Stir in harissa, garlic and olive oil.

Cover dish with foil; seal. Roast 18 to 25 minutes for frozen halibut or 10 to 15 minutes for fresh/thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
