Orange-Ginger Baked Halibut with Blueberry Avocado Salsa
2 tsp orange zest
1 Tbsp fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1/4 cup orange juice
3 Tbsp coconut aminos
3 Tbsp avocado oil
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 pound halibut, cut into 4 fillets
Blueberry Avocado Salsa:
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 avocado, peeled and diced
1/3 cup red bell pepper, chopped
2 Tbsp chives, chopped
2 Tbsp lime juice
1 pinch sea salt, to taste
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!
