As you’re well aware, I’m completely obsessed with salmon to the extent that I often have to convince myself to eat other forms of protein.

Not anymore, friends…this halibut recipe has stolen my heart and sent my taste buds singing to the outer reaches of the galaxy. Move over, salmon, there’s a new fish in town!

And since we’re on the topic, nothing makes me feel sexier than a well-composed seafood recipe. It does a badass individual make! And..

Ooh la laaaaa this is SEXY!

Let’s chat.

The marinade for this baked halibut is out of this world! Made with fresh orange juice, orange zest, coconut aminos, ginger, and avocado oil, this simple formula is perfectly sweet and tangy for the most flavorful, delightful fish!

I love the orange ginger marinade so much, I plan on using it on every form of animal protein – beef, chicken, pork, shrimp, you name it!

Psst! You can even use it as salad dressing or sauce for all your bowl recipes. The options are limitless.

Let’s dive in!

How to Make Orange Ginger Baked Halibut:

Add all of the ingredients for the orange ginger marinade to a small blender (I use my Magic Bullet) and blend until completely smooth.

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.

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

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!

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!
