  • 2 lbs of MSC certified Halibut portioned into 4-6 equal sized pieces

  4. In a small bowl, combine all citrus zests and set aside
  5. Use a pan large enough to fit all the halibut without crowding, or two medium pans. Heat to medium high and add a drizzle of oil. Decide which side of the halibut you want to present on the plate (the ‘presentation side’) and place the fish that side down in the pan. Do not move the fish for at least 5 minutes! This will create a nice, think golden crust.(2 minutes longer for very
  6. Flip the halibut onto the prepared parchment lined baking sheet and roast in the oven for 7-10 minutes to finish the cooking.
  7. Remove halibut from oven and place on 4-6 individual plates. Sprinkle the crispy side with the zest mixture and season with a little salt. Evenly distribute the avocado salsa around or on top. Serve immediately.
