Halibut with Lemon Dill Butter

I needed something quick for dinner last night.   I worked at the Victoria store yesterday which means  I’m later getting home.  Closer to 6:30 than my normal 5:20.   Initially I thought I would just stop on my way out of Victoria and get take out.  Maybe Chinese.  But I would have had to go further out of my way and I didn’t feel like doing that.  

So I stopped closer to home and picked up fresh halibut fillets.   

This is one of those no-brainer dinners that can be on the table pretty quickly.   
The rice takes the longest to cook, time for a big pot of water to boil, 10 minutes for the rice to cook and 10 for it to rest, while the fish finishes off in the oven.  Finished off with a drizzle of melted butter, and fresh squeezed lemon juice.

Served with fresh steamed asparagus.

A 30 minute meal.

    Another one of your absolutely mouth-watering meals. I'm going to check out the halibut at the grocery store today. It won't be fresh like yours but what can you expect in south Texas. Have a wonderful weekend.KarenLadybug Creek

  4. Lovely! I so enjoy these light quick dinners during the summer months. And as always, your pictures are drool worthy!xoxo Pattie

  5. Thank you. When fresh isn't available here ( about 4 months Nov to March) I buy the frozen. Halibut that is going to be sold as frozen is frozen right at sea so it is almost as good as fresh caught. Ann
