Pan-Seared Halibut with Beans, Basil, and Asparagus


Asparagus and basil give this simple, delicious recipe a spring-like seasonal appeal.

The beans add a distinctively Mediterranean flair and hearty, healthful substance that combines perfectly with light, flaky Halibut.

Pan-Seared Halibut with Beans, Basil, and Asparagus  

Prep time 15 minutes
Serves 4

1 tablespoon organic extra virgin olive oil
16 cippolini or pearl onions, trimmed and peeled
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 pound asparagus spears, trimmed and cut in 2 inch pieces
6 oz small fresh whole mushrooms, halved
2 tablespoons fresh basil
1 can (15
19 oz) cannelloni or favorite beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (14.5 oz) low-fat chicken broth
1 teaspoon soy sauce, if desired
2 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil
4 Alaskan Halibut fillet portions (6 oz each)
1 1/2 Tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon dried garlic
1/2 teaspoon organic black pepper

  • Sauté onions in olive oil in heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until onions are translucent, about 3‒4 minutes. Add garlic, asparagus, and mushrooms; stir-fry 1 minute. Stir in basil, beans, chicken broth, soy sauce, and butter; heat until butter is melted. Remove from pan and keep warm.

  • Wipe pan clean. Rinse thawed Halibut under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Brush both sides of halibut with oil. Place halibut in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, about 3‒4 minutes, until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.

  • Turn halibut over and season with garlic-pepper blend. Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium. Cook an additional 6‒8 minutes for frozen halibut or 3‒4 minutes for fresh/thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.

  • To serve, place each halibut portion in shallow pasta/soup bowl. Spoon 1 cup vegetables and broth over fish.
