Here is the list of ingredients:

  • Halibut – 1 pound
  • Ground coriander – ½ tsp.
  • Kosher salt – 1/4th tsp.

For the relish:

Tip: to segment the orange slices, first you have to cut the edges with a sharp knife and then remove the thin white peel and pith. Then chop as you would a tomato.

And here is the method of preparation:

Prepare the halibut:

  • Preheat your oven to 450 degree Fahrenheit. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Cut the fish into 4 equal portions.
  • Next, prepare the seasoning in a bowl – mix the coriander and salt and sprinkle liberally on both sides of the fish. Now place fish on the baking sheet.
  • Bake the fish till it flakes when you press it with a knife – should take about 10-12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish.

Prepare the relish:

  • Take a medium sized bowl and mix all the ingredients for the relish together till all of them are well incorporated.
  • You can even refrigerate the relish for about 2 hours to get the flavors to come out.

To plate:

  • Place the fish on a platter and top with the relish – and serve!
