Ingredients
Orange-Ginger Halibut:
  • 2 tsp orange zest
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger peeled and grated
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 3 Tbsp coconut aminos
  • 3 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 pound halibut cut into 4 fillets
Blueberry Avocado Salsa:
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 avocado peeled and diced
  • 1/3 cup red bell pepper chopped
  • 2 Tbsp chives chopped
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 pinch sea salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Add all of the ingredients for the orange ginger marinade to a small blender (I use my Magic Bullet) and blend until completely smooth.

  2. Transfer the halibut fillets to a zip lock bag and pour in the marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, up to 24 hours.

  3. When you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  4. Transfer the halibut along with the marinade to a casserole dish. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until cooked through. For a crispy finish, set the oven to the high broil setting and broil for 5 to 8 minutes, until the top of the halibut is golden-brown. This step is optional but encouraged!

  5. While the halibut is baking, prepare the super simple blueberry avocado salsa. Simply add the ingredients for the salsa to a bowl and stir them up! Season with sea salt. Serve baked halibut with blueberry avocado salsa and your favorite side dishes!
