It’s hard to go wrong with this light, healthy and simple preparation. You, too, can be lord of the halibut!


  • 4 halibut fillets (8 ounces each)
  • 4 sheets of parchment paper (12 x 28 inches)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 ounces button mushrooms, quartered
  • 8 ounces red bell pepper, julienned
  • 8 ounces red onion, julienned
  • 8 ounces celery, julienned


Preheat oven to 450°F.

Place one halibut fillet onto one half a parchment paper sheet. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top with 2 ounces of each vegetable for a total of 8 ounces of veggies. Fold the other half of the parchment over and crimp the open side from one end to the other, working clockwise, to create a sealed pouch, or "papillote." Repeat for each fillet.

Bake papillotes for 10-12 minutes or until a probe thermometer placed into the thickest part of the fillet reads 145°F.

Place packet on plate, tear open top and serve immediately.
