Chimichurri-Baked Halibut

Busy, busy, short on time,
Not even time enough to rhyme.

All I want to say today?
I made fish a brand new way.

Really, really in a hurry,
So I made some chimichurri.

Poured it on filet of fish,
Threw it on my serving dish.

Dinner on in minutes flat,
To myself I tip my hat.:)


Chimichurri Recipe

1 T garlic, minced

1 T shallot, minced

3/4 tsp. chili pepper flakes

1/2 tsp. serrano chili, minced

2 T parseley, chopped finely

1 T cilantro, chopped finely

1 T fresh mint, chopped finely

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp. coarse salt


2 large halibut filets

1/2 tsp. seasoned salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Place the halibut filets on a baking sheet lined with foil.  Dust the filets with seasoned salt.  Heap two tablespoons of chimichurri over each filet and spread it out a bit.  Set aside the remaining chimichurri for dipping. Place the baking sheet in the oven and cook the filets for 13-15 minutes or until they are flaky and juicy (sometimes I broil the fish for 1-2 minutes for color.) Serves 4
