India Inspired Baked Saffron Halibut


Indian markets are full of beautiful herbs, spices, and all the colors of the culinary world. One of the most beautiful of these is saffron, a vibrant red/pinkish thread with amazing flavors. I love to let this beautiful flavor ding by pairing it with a mild white fish, allowing the saffron to steal the show!

Full time 35-40 minutes
Serves 4-6

The needs-

1 lb. halibut fillets
1 tbsp water, boiling
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp saffron

The know-

In a small heat resistant bowl combine saffron and water and let sit 10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350' and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, lightly sprayed with cooking spray.

Make sure fillets are dry of excess moisture and lay flat on baking sheet.

Season with 1/2 the salt and pepper.

Drizzle half of this over fish.

Sprinkle 1/2 the salt and pepper over the fillets.

Place fish in oven and bake 10 minutes.

Whisk in all remaining ingredients, oil mixture, and saffron mixture together.

Once fish has baked 10 minutes, spoon saffron oil mixture evenly over fish.

Return fish to oven 10-15 minutes or until it easily flakes with a fork.

Carefully remove from baking sheet to serving platter, cheers!
