Recipe Notes

Mix It Up: Use another fish like cod instead of halibut if you’d rather.¬†

Nutrition Nugget: Some people fear eating fish due to mercury. Many types of fish (including halibut) have a lower risk for contaminants and are considered safe even for at-risk groups like children and pregnant women, up to 12 oz per week. Swordfish, shark, king mackerel, and tile fish pose the greatest risk.
