BACON TOPPED BAKED HALIBUT (TRIATHLETE-FRIENDLY!)
Halibut is usually outside my budget. I love it, but even living here in Victoria, halibut is special treat. So when I see it on sale, I jump on it. It’s got amazing flavour for a white fish and cooks up to be super flaky. At 36g of protein, it’s hard to beat halibut as a nutrient source. This recipe is also nut-free and paleo. To make it dairy-free, simply swap out the butter for olive oil.
This was our Saturday night dinner date meal – and oh so worth it. Topped with bacon and it’s out of this world. The best part? Less than 30 minutes from start to finish. Yum!
I served it with Kale Salad, steamed broccoli and a sliced tomato for some colour.
The recipe below serves 2, but can easily be doubled or tripled.
