Baked Halibut with Chimichurri

Baked Halibut with Chimichurri Prep time: 25 mins Cook time: 20 mins Serves: 4


  • 3 cloves - garlic
  • 1 - small shallot
  • 1 cup - parsley
  • 1/4 cup - cilantro
  • 1/4 cup - extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 TBSP - red wine vinegar
  • 2 TBSP - water
  • 1 TSP - red pepper flakes
  • 2 TSP - salt
  • 11/2 lbs - halibut, cut in 4 portions


  1. 1 Combine all the chimichurri ingredients in a small food processor and blend until smooth. (Alternatively, you can finely chop the garlic, shallot and herbs by hand. Mix with the remaining ingredients in a small bowl.) Let sit at room temperature for at least 20 minutes, or cover and refrigerate up to 1 day
  2. 2 Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly season the fish with a little salt. Rub all sides of each piece of fish with about 1 tablespoon of the chimichurri and place in a baking dish. Reserve the remaining sauce for serving.
  3. 3 Bake for 12-20 minutes — depending on the thickness of the fish — or until fish is firm and almost opaque all the way through. Serve with a little of the reserved chimichurri sauce spooned over each piece.
