Halibut with Lemon-Fennel Salad

Serves: 4

Fennel is a delicate, sweet-flavored, licorice-scented vegetable. It contains anethole and cineole, which have an antibacterial effect that can help with indigestion-related issues. These compounds also have an expectorant effect, helping to clear the lungs.



1 tsp. ground coriander
½ tsp. ground cumin
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
5 tsp. extra virgin olive oil, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 (6-oz.) halibut fillets
2 cups thinly sliced fennel bulb
¼ cup thinly sliced red onion
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves



1. In a small bowl, combine the coriander, cumin, salt and pepper. In a separate small bowl, combine 1½ teaspoons of the spice mixture with 2 teaspoons of the oil and the garlic; rub this garlic mixture evenly over the fish.
2. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fish and cook for 5 minutes on each side, or to your desired degree of doneness.
3. Meanwhile, combine the remaining ⅓ teaspoon spice mixture and the remaining 2 teaspoons oil with the fennel, onion, lemon juice, parsley and thyme in a medium bowl, tossing well to coat. Serve the salad alongside the fish.
