Halibut with Turmeric Marinade

Over the weekend I went to the Farmer’s Market to buy fish.  I almost always get salmon or tilapia, so I decided to switch things up and buy halibut.  I had only cooked halibut on an outside grill, so I grabbed a recipe card from the fish monger to help me decide how to cook my fish. The recipe card suggested baking in oven, with a few of my ingredient staples.  But, besides switching up the fish I used, I decided to use a spice I had never used before, Turmeric.  I substituted the ingredients on the card that I did not have or use for other ingredients in my cabinet or fridge.  I came up with the below recipe and was beyond excited with how well it turned out, that I made it again the next night.  Follow the directions below!

2 TBSP Dijon Mustard

1 TBSP Lime or Lemon Juice

1 TBSP Vinegar (I used Apple Cider)

1/4 TSP Turmeric

1 Halibut Filet

Salt, Pepper, Onion Powder, and Garlic Salt

Preheat oven to 350

Sprinkle salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic salt on one side of fish filet

Seasoned Filet

Combine mustard, lime or lemon juice, vinegar, and turmeric in small bowl to make marinade.

Combined Ingredients for Marinade

Place fish in baking dish coated with cooking spray and pour marinade over fish

Halibut with Marinade

Bake in oven for 15-2o minutes depending on thickness of filet


The marinade was so tasty that I am going to start putting it on chicken, shrimp, scallops, vegetables, you get the idea…pretty much everything!  Hope you give this a try!

Stay hungry…
