-1 – 6 oz. halibut filet rinsed and patted dry
-1 tablespoon of Sonoma Farm Lime Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil
-Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
-1 tablespoon of fresh cilantro minced or more depending on taste
Parchment paper or heavy duty foil
Cut a piece of parchment paper or foil to about 10 inches in length and 12 inches in width. Place the parchment paper or foil on a baking sheet. Half of the sheet should be flat and the other flat will be the “cover”. Place fish parchment paper. Add lime infused extra virgin olive oil and evenly coat fish. Sprinkle with Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Add cilantro and place the remaining limes on top. Fold paper or foil overlapping each other in increments of 1 – 2 inches crimping to seal. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes. Plate and carefully open package, because hot steam will be released.
