Blackened Halibut

Sometimes I think I should just live in Alaska.


The beautiful green scenery, close to the ocean, fresh seafood, GREAT fishing, wildlife in your backyard… sounds pretty amazing..

Then I remember one thing… Its effing freezing there.. it snows more often then not.. SO I just like to have family go and catch the fish and bring it home to me. –> Although, I would still LOVE to go visit one day! (Thanks, Chris!)



My love for fish or any seafood for that matter is never ending! Fish is a great source of protein and includes omega-3 fatty acids, contains several important minerals and is great for cardiovascular health!

The fish of the day today is Halibut! Its one of my favorites because it doesn’t really have a “fishy” taste to it. Its very light and cooks quickly!

Blackened Halibut




  • 8 oz. Halibut filet
  • 1 Tbs Olive oil
  • Paprika (to taste)
  • Mrs. Dash- original/lemon pepper (to taste)


Heat up skillet on med-high heat

Pour a little bit of the olive oil on the skillet and place the halibut on top skin down.

Using a brush, cover the rest of the halibut with the remaining olive oil

Get spice happy and sprinkle your heart out..

Cook each side for about 3 minutes


Fish should be white and flakey when done!

It’s that easy!


Serve with any veggie and startch for a complete meal.

I went with roasted broccoli and cauliflower, in the perfect world I wouldn’t of eaten my last sweet potato on Wednesday.. and would have had that as well.


SOOOO good!

Q. What is your favorite fish?


  1. The only halibut I've ever had is as fish & chips & that's not the healthiest, even though I LOVE it. But then, I LOVE LOVE LOVE some good salmon. Oh, and when I was up in Seattle 2 yrs (?) ago, I got some fresh fish (can't remember what kind it is) from the Pike Place Fish Market and it was DIVINE!!!
