15 Minute Fish

Fish is an excellent source of lean protein, healthy fats and is super simple to make! This 15 minute fish is my go-to for busy weeknights when I prefer to avoid the sugar and salt laden takeout.

Of course, fresh fish is best; however, I always have good quality frozen white fish in my freezer that I put in the fridge the night before so its thawed by the next day.

Lemon, garlic and fresh herbs are always flavour staples in my fridge as they brighten up so many dishes without adding unnecessary calories, sugar or fat. 


1 Halibut Filet

1 Clove of Garlic

Half of a Lemon

1 Tomato

2 Thyme Sprigs

1/4 tsp Cracked Pepper

1/4 tsp Sea Salt

1 tsp. Olive Oil


Rinse the Halibut Filet and pat dry with a paper towel. Season with Cracked Pepper and Sea Salt. Set Aside.
Wash the Tomato and Lemon. Chop the Tomato into large chunks and the Lemon unto half wheels. Peel and roughly chop the Clove of Garlic.
Place the Halibut onto a large piece of parchment paper. Roll up the ends of the parchment until it creates a rough bowl shape around the fish. Add the tomato, Lemon, chopped Garlic and Thyme Sprigs. Drizzle with Olive Oil.
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Don’t over cook the fish! As long as it’s no longer translucent- its done! It should flake away nicely.
Transfer onto a ** warmed plate and serve with a green salad or just eat it right out of the parchment paper bowl.
