Fresh Herbed Halibut


We love this recipe for its ease, speed and tastiness. With six ingredients, the fish is a snap and so good! All you have to do is keep an eye on it while it’s in the broiler; times can vary, and leaving a pan for too long can leave you with charcoal instead of dinner! Each serving has 270 calories, 3.9 grams of carbs and almost 48 grams of protein! Get the recipe.

Halibut with Balsamic Cherry Tomatoes


The balsamic vinegar and tomatoes give this fish both a slight sharpness and a sweet tang. The recipe is a little more intensive—it has two more ingredients and is cooked on the stovetop. But, it’s well worth the effort! A serving has 224 calories, five grams of carbs and 33 grams of protein. Get the recipe.

Walnut- and Dijon-Crusted Halibut


This is a great recipe when you have guests coming over because it looks as good as it tastes! The walnuts in the crust not only add texture but also act as an extra protein boost and a bit of healthy fat. Each portion has 307 calories, seven grams of carbs and 35 grams of protein. Get the recipe.

Grilled Halibut


This simply named recipe is also simple to make. What we really like about this is just how basic the technique is. If you’re having a busy night, this 15-minute meal is so fast and so yummy! The honey of the recipe increases the carbohydrate content, but we think it’s worth it. The dish has 193 calories, 10 grams of carbs and 21 grams of carbs. Get the recipe.

With all the health benefits of this ultra-lean fish, we hope you enjoy these recipes soon!
