Herb Halibut with Oranges & Parsnips

I received a very nice surprise today, fresh halibut. What a treat! Giving me fresh seafood, vegetables, fruit, or herbs, its like giving me toys. I immediately had a plan.

I rubbed some coconut oil in a glass baking dish. I slightly powdered the halibut fillets with a spelt and cornmeal mixture and laid them in the pan. Then I sprinkled sal con limón, fresh ground pepper, fresh oregano leaves, fresh cilantro, and some sliced leeks. I gently squeezed orange segments over the fish and laid them around the fillet. I also sliced a parsnip in about half in slices and placed them around the edge of the dish. I baked it at 375º for 25 minutes. It turned out lovely.

 I served it with fresh raw vegetable salad and some garlic toast. I thought the roasted oranges were very nice. My husband thought the roasted oranges were a little different, but he loved the seafood.

While I was eating it I thought it would be great for lunch tomorrow. There isn't any left for lunch tomorrow.

Thanks to my friend for the halibut, we really enjoyed it!
