Succulent baked halibut with slightly of lemon, Dijon mustard and dill is a perfect meal when something light and healthy is what you’re hungry for, and it’s able to serve in around twenty minutes!

Halibut was one among favorite sorts of fish to organize and serve to my clients during my personal chef days.


The light and succulent fillets were the right canvas to require on the marginally bright and tangy flavors of lemon, garlic, perhaps slightly of mustard, and a sprinkling of herbs and seasoning. And therefore the incontrovertible fact that they baked off so quickly made it an incredibly quick and convenient meal to prepare!

Because halibut takes on added flavors so well, it only needs a couple of minutes of quick marination before simply being placed onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and baked for roughly 12 minutes.


  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Pinch paprika (about 1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon)
  • 2 large garlic cloves, pressed through garlic press
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 (6 ounce) skinless halibut fillets (you can ask you seafood department to cut it for you)
  • Fresh dill, chopped for garnish
  • Lemon slices or wedges, on the side
  1. Preheat your oven to 450°, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
  2. In a small ramekin, prepare the marinade/seasoning by combining the pressed garlic cloves, Dijon, lemon juice and zest, the paprika, and a couple of good pinches of salt and pepper with a fork; add in the olive oil, 1 tablespoon at a time, and blend that in until combined.
  3. Place the halibut fillets onto the prepared baking sheet, and brush each fillet with the seasoning mixture (or pour it directly over), and if you have a few minutes, allow it the fillets to marinate for 10-20 minutes.
  4. Place the seasoned fillets into the oven and bake for 10 minutes; then, turn the broiler on, and allow the fish to broil for 2-3 minutes until it has a bit of color, and is tender, flaky and cooked through
  5. To finish, sprinkle over some fresh dill, add lemon slices or wedges, and serve with your choice of side.
