What To Serve With Halibut?


Bacon-wrapped shrimp

One of our favorite ways to cook halibut is in oven or broiler baked, breading it like chicken wings and topping it with crispy bacon pieces and shredded cheese. This recipe was invented by my cousin who always makes this dish for us when she has halibut at her house!

To make this appetizer, you will need 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs, 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, and 1 tablespoon olive oil. To prepare the breaded fish, have one piece of halved bread roll per person. Coat each piece of halibut in the breadcrumb mixture, then fry in butter or olive oil until golden and crisp. Top with your choice of sauce and pepper.

Cucumber and dill salad

This cucumber and dill salad is one of our favorite recipes for grilled halibut or any other white fish, such as flounder. It is also perfect if you are looking to eat healthy because it is full of nutritious vegetables!

The tart flavor of the vinegar plays well with the mild taste of the fish. The crunchy texture from the fresh greens pairs very well with the soft flesh of the halibut.

Since this recipe only requires eight ingredients, it will not cost too much to make. If you have leftovers, just pack them up in an insulated container and take them lunch next day.

Tuna salad

While most people associate tuna with mayo, there are many different types of dressings that use canned or bottled tuna as an ingredient. These other recipes make them taste good!

One of my personal favorites is what we call “tuna salad” here at The Food Lab. It is typically made with one 5-ounce can white solid chunk tuna (be sure to check if it has nutritional info before adding anything else), one teaspoon raw honey, two tablespoons olive oil, and seasonings such as pepper and/or celery seed.

If you like more flavor, you can always add spinach or arugula to give it some texture and green color. You can also whisk together the ingredients first to see if they mix properly before incorporating into the dish.

Whether you eat this recipe as a side or main course does not matter – it is totally delicious! And better than ever when paired with halved fresh vegetables and bread to make lunch time fun.

Olives and chips

Olive oil is one of the most popular oils you can use in cooking. It’s famous for its flavor, so it’s not limited to just using it as an ingredient in recipes. You can also add it to other dishes as a finishing touch.

It’s no wonder people love olive oil! The health benefits of olive oil have been well known for quite some time now. It’s considered to be a heart healthy fat, and studies show that olive oil may help reduce blood cholesterol levels.

Olive oil has a rich history as a culinary staple. Many classic foods contain olive oil as a key component like pizza or pasta sauce, French fries, and buttery salad dressings.

Lemon butter

This is one of our favorite recipes for halibut because it is guaranteed to win over most people’s taste buds! The tart flavor of the lemon compliments the rich, almost buttery texture of the fish and everything about this recipe screams “eat me!”

Lemon butter can be made using either fresh or frozen lemons depending on if you have access to them at the time of cooking the halibut. If using frozen limes, make sure they are thawed before using in the recipe.

If making this dish ahead of time, let it sit and come together as it does not contain raw eggs, so there is no need to worry about keeping these safe until ready to use.

Roasted potatoes and veggies

When it comes to what kind of starch to serve with halibut, we like to go easy on the bread products and instead opt for roasted vegetables or even cooked rice or pasta. Either one of these would make a great replacement!

We also recommend adding some olive oil and salt to taste to boost the flavor of the dish. Having both butter and vegetable oil in your diet is always better, so this makes sense!

Halibut can be a bit expensive, but they are definitely worth the cost if you are looking to eat well. This white fish is full of protein that will help keep you feeling strong and healthy.
