Roasted Halibut with Smashed Spring Peas

Roasted Halibut with Smashed Spring Peas

Jump to Recipe

Spring time and peas are synonymous to me! They are so vibrant and just scream spring. If there is one thing I always have in my freezer though, it is peas! Frozen peas as literally the best! Peas are packed with fiber and protein and so versatile. Halibut is also in season now, it is one of my favorite fish to eat! It is a mild white fish, but is a bit more firm. It is more buttery than cod though, which is why I like it!

This dish is seriously SO easy, but looks pretty fancy. You roast the fish for just 15 minutes and mix up the peas and you are done! If you don’t like fish, you could also use grilled chicken. But the fish is the way to go. If you can’t find halibut (or are looking for a more affordable option, as it can be expensive), cod will work here!

Here is what you will need:

  • Halibut – or cod
  • Olive Oil
  • Lemon
  • Peas
  • Parmesan
  • Garlic
