Cut the lemon into small pieces and place in the dish, surrounding the fish

Cook for 20 minutes

*Halibut is a low calorie, nutrient rich, high quality protein containing potassium, magnesium, B vitamins and the important omega-3 fatty acids. Fatty acids are essential because they cannot be made by the body, but rather obtained by the foods we eat. Try eating two servings of omega-3 fish per week to reap the benefits.
