Easy to make and widely available, salmon, tilapia and cod are often touted as go-to picks for family-friendly fish dinners, but if you’re looking to dress up your usual seafood selection, try a new favorite: halibut. A mild white fish that’s firm and meaty in texture, halibut stands up well to bold flavors and ingredients, plus it can be cooked in a number of ways and is quick enough to prepare on busy weeknights. Whether you opt for a simple, light marinade of olive oil and lemon juice or prefer a more adventurous fillet with spices, herbs and sauces, there’s a halibut preparation to please every taste. Check out Food Network’s top-five halibut recipes below for easy dinner inspiration and a mix of can-do dishes that will impress your family and party guests alike.
