Roasted Halibut with Strawberry-Basil Salsa
Health Highlights


2 cup slices Strawberries (and diced)
1/2 cup Basil, fresh (thinly sliced)
1/4 cup Red onion (diced)
1/4 cup Mint, fresh (thinly sliced)
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp Red wine vinegar
2 fillet (6oz) Wild Atlantic halibut
2 tbsp Vegetable oil (for halibut)


  1. Assemble the salsa by prepping the strawberries, basil, red onion, mint, olive oil, and red wine vinegar in a bowl and gently toss together to combine. Set aside.
  2. Score the skin of halibut fillets twice with sharp knife to stop from curling. Sprinkle both sides with salt.
  3. In a heavy pan or skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Place fillets in pan skin side down. Cook without moving 3 minutes, and then turn fish skin side up. Cook until fish is crisp on outside and just cooked through in center, 6 minutes total.
  4. Spoon salsa over fish and serve immediately.


Quick Tip:

  • If you need to make the salsa ahead, do so by only a few hours and then add the fresh herbs at the last minute, or they will discolor and the salsa will become soggy.

Nutritional Highlight:

  • Halibut contains several heart-healthy nutrients, such as omega-3 fatty acids, niacin, selenium, and magnesium.
