Meatless Monday Recipe for Halibut

| August 8, 2011 | 0 Comments

cooking with momIt’s meatless monday and we are trying to figure out what to have tonight. It is a constant battle to get the kids to eat more fish so we are always on the look out for family friendly fish recipes. According to the new Food Pyramid we need to be eating fish once a week and also incorporate more fish and vegetarian meals into our diet. Today’s Meatless Monday meal is going to be Pan Grilled Halibut with Chimichurri. I changed it up a bit because I could not find any halibut at any of our local stores so I made my own version – you can also use Pan Grilled Snapper with Chimichurri. It was very easy to put together and definitely something we eat again – even the kids ate it ! Join us and be a part of the Meatless Monday Movement.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and about 2 teaspoons sauce)
Recipe from


  • 1 1/2  tablespoons  chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 1/2  tablespoon  chopped fresh basil
  • 1  1/2  tablespoon  finely chopped shallots
  • 2  tablespoons  olive oil
  • 1 1/2  tablespoons  fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt, divided
  • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • Cayenne Pepper on top once it is cooked for a little extra kick
  • Cooking spray
  • 4  (6-ounce) Snapper fillets


1. Combine the first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl; stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.

2. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper over fish. Add fish to pan; cook 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with sauce.

As a side I made a Risotto with Asparagus and Mushrooms – it was great with it. We have also made it with an Orzo pasta salad that the kids loved. So will you join me and pledge to go meatless just one day a week?
