Halibut with Radish Relish
Baking halibut (or any fish for that matter) in parchment paper packets is a fantastic way to create a tender, moist fillet with no added fat.
1 bunch radishes, trimmed and finely chopped
1 green onion, trimmed and thinly sliced
2 tablespoons drained capers, chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon grated lemon zest
4 (3-ounce) skinless halibut fillets
1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 lemon, very thinly sliced
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a medium bowl, combine radishes, green onion, capers, lemon juice and lemon zest, and set aside.
- Cut parchment paper into 4 (14-inch) squares. Fold each piece of paper in half to form a crease down the middle like a book, then unfold. Place one halibut fillet on each piece of paper, arranging it just to one side of the crease. Top fillets with salt, pepper and lemon slices.
- Fold paper over to completely cover ingredients. To seal the pouch, begin at an end of a folded corner, and crimp/fold along the outer edges until all open sides are secure. Repeat procedure with the remaining 3 squares and ingredients. Transfer pouches to a baking sheet, and bake until the fish is cooked through, about 15 minutes. Set aside to let cool for 3 to 4 minutes.
- To serve, place each sealed pouch on an individual plate. Use scissors to carefully snip an opening on the top, peel back paper and evenly divide radish relish among fillets.
