  • 4 halibut fillets
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 shallots finely diced
  • 1 tbsp parsley finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp chives finely chopped
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  • Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, shallots, parsley, half of the chives (save the remaining for garnish), lemon juice and pepper.
  • Lightly coat the inside of the baking dish with oil or butter (to prevent the halibut from sticking). Place the halibut filets in the baking dish.
  • Evenly spoon your mayonnaise mixture onto the top of the halibut filets. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes minutes being careful not to overcook. Just before the fish is done, turn on the top broiler of your oven for 1-2 minutes to make the top golden. The fish is done when it becomes opaque.
  • Remove the halibut from the oven and sprinkle the remaining chives evenly on top. Serve immediately.
