Chili/Lime Halibut
4 servings Easy
Total: Active:
PREVIOUS: Chili Powder NEXT: Sebastians' Chili-Lime Kebobs

Ingredients (5)

  • 4 6-ounce Halibut filets
  • 1 TBL chili powder (ancho for mild and chipotle for spicy)
  • 1 lime, juiced and zested
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 TBL canola oil

This is a terrific dish I did a few months ago for You can substitute any fish, even salmon or tuna and it will still be amazing. I serve it with a Southwestern Pilaf. I’ll post that recipe as well.


  1. 1Season the Halibut with salt, pepper, chili powder and lime zest.
  2. 2Heat a large pan to medium high and sauté each filet until brown on one side, roughly 7 minutes.
  3. 3Turn each filet and baste with lime juice (reserving some). Cook for 4 – 7 minutes more.
  4. 4Baste with remaining lime juice just before serving.
