  • 4 fillets fresh halibut about 1 1/2 pounds total
  • 1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt
  • 2 tablespoons packed fresh basil leaves roughly chopped and packed
  • 1 clove garlic small
  • 3 tablespoons almond meal ground almonds
  • Salt and pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set the halibut fillets on top.
  • Place the Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt in a small food processor and add the fresh basil and garlic. Puree until smooth. (Or place the ingredients in a bowl and puree with an immersion blender.)
  • Dollop 1 teaspoon of basil butter on each halibut fillet, then spread the butter over the surface with a spatula. Refrigerate the rest of the basil butter until ready to serve. Salt and pepper the fillets. Sprinkle approximately 2 teaspoons of ground almond meal over the top of each piece.
  • Place the baking sheet in the oven on the middle rack. Bake for 5 minutes. Then set the oven temperature on high broil. Broil the fillets for another 4-5 minutes, until the tops are slightly golden. Do not overcook! The tops should be a little crispy, but the inside of each halibut fillet should be moist and flaky. Serve the baked halibut warm with a dollop of basil butter on top.
