While we are always interested in eating a delicious seafood dinner, spending a lot of time in the kitchen cooking and cleaning is not always appealing. That’s why this Maple Walnut-Crusted Sheet Pan Halibut is a seafood mealtime must—it takes just minutes to make and cooks in one pan!
Halibut is a “meaty” white fish that can handle some heat! Whether grilling it or popping it in the oven (at 400 degrees for this recipe), you’ll love how well this sumptuous fish holds up to the heat. In this recipe, the crunch of the walnuts pairs deliciously with a little sweetness (thanks to maple syrup), which is why we absolutely love this dish. If you’ve eaten halibut in a restaurant but have yet to try it at home, we’re challenging you to add this amazing recipe to your repertoire—it’s a great fish dish to start with!
The first order of business is selecting the halibut. Ask your fishmonger for the freshest pieces or opt for frozen and defrost in your fridge. Frozen halibut is a great option to have on hand when it comes to weekly menu planning and meal prepping.
Not only is halibut delicious, it provides a boatload of healthful nutrients, like muscle-building protein, immune-boosting selenium and heart-healthy omega-3s. Eating fish regularly has been shown to help improve cholesterol, manage weight and boost brain and heart health.
This recipe is one of our personal favorites, as the combination of sweet maple syrup and walnut crunch adds a flavorful texture to this nutrient-filled dish.
