Fresh Orange Halibut Print Email

2 lbs. fresh Halibut
Juice and zest of 1 orange
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
4 TBS. butter
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup minced parsley

Wrap fish in a paper towel for a few minutes to remove excess moisture. Place a single layer of fillets in a buttered baking dish. Combine the juices and zest and pour over the fish. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and nutmeg and dot with butter.

Bake at 400-425 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, or until fish flakes easily. Let stand 5 minutes, then remove to a hot serving dish. Pour pan drippings over the fish if you like (they may be strained if you wish). Sprinkle with parsley & serve.
