Active: 35 Total: 35
Cilantro lime dressing does double duty in this meal. Mix a bit with butter to melt over fish and use the rest to dress a fresh salad.


Cumin-Lime Halibut:
  • Butter - 3 Tbsp
  • Cilantro Lime Dressing (ingredients listed separately) - 1 Tbsp
  • Halibut fillets - 4 (sub any firm white fish)
  • Cumin - 1/4 tsp
  • Lime zest - 1/4 tsp
  • Oil, cooking - 1 Tbsp
Sugar Snap Pea and Radish Salad:
  • Sugar snap peas - 8 oz (sub snow peas)
  • Radishes - 4 , halved and thinly sliced (sub small English cucumbers)
  • Salad greens, any type - 8 oz , leaves torn
  • Avocados - 1 , cubed
  • Cilantro Lime Dressing (ingredients listed separately) - ~5 Tbsp
Cilantro Lime Dressing:
  • Cilantro leaves, tightly packed - 1/2 cup
  • Lime juice - 2 tsp
  • Vinegar, red or white wine - 1 tsp
  • Mustard, Dijon - 2 tsp
  • Honey - 1 tsp
  • Salt - 1/2 tsp
  • Oil, olive - 4 Tbsp


  1. Make cilantro lime dressing - Combine cilantro (if you don’t have an immersion blender, finely chop cilantro first), lime juice, vinegar, mustard, honey, salt, and olive oil. Blend with an immersion blender until nearly smooth. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Make cilantro-lime butter - Heat butter in the microwave just until melted. Stir in cilantro lime dressing (portion for fish). Refrigerate until ready to use. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Fish - Rinse fish and pat dry. Score the halibut with a knife by slicing through the skin a few times about 1/4" / .6 cm deep (this will help the fish to cook evenly). Season halibut with cumin, lime zest, and some salt.
  4. Snap peas / Radishes / Lettuce - Prep as directed.
  5. Avocados - Cube avocados.
