This lemon-herb concoction is easy to whip up in a food processor and is great on fish or chicken.

Ingredients:

2 1/2 lbs fresh wild Alaska halibut, cut into 8 fillets
the peel of one lemon
6 sprigs of fresh organic thyme
1 handful of Italian parsley
1 tbs Land o’ Lakes light butter with canola oil, melted

How I Made It:

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.  Line a large baking dish with aluminum foil sprayed with non-stick spray.  Arrange the halibut in the dish.

Because you’re going to use the food processor, you can just peel the lemon with a vegetable peeler.  Combine the lemon peel, thyme, and parsley in the food processor and pulse until it starts to come together in a paste.  Slowly add the melted butter as you continue to process the lemon and herbs.  When you have a lovely fragrant paste, you’re done.

With a silicon pastry brush, cover the halibut with the lemon-herb concoction.  Bake the halibut covered for 30 minutes.  Uncover and bake another 10 minutes or until the halibut is cooked through.

How It Turned Out:

The fish was firm and flavorful, and paired well with a spring vegetable pasta.
