Halibut with Zucchini Salsa Verde

My husband is a fisherman... So we love to eat fish. I'm always looking for good/delicious fish recipes so that it doesn't get boring to eat. I found this one on Epicurious, and we loved it! We even used the salsa verde for fish tacos the next night. It was delicious!

My blender broke while trying to make this, so a lil shout out to Kassey for being such an awesome neighbor and loaning me her's. Otherwise, this meal would not have happened... at least not that night. :)

I also calculated this recipe using caloriecount.com and it's only ~250 calories per serving! Love that!!!

  • 10 ounces zucchini (about 2 medium), trimmed, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro plus leaves for garnish
  • 1/3 cup chopped white onion
  • 5 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons chopped seeded jalapeƱo chiles
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons finely grated lime peel
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided    ***comments on the site said this was too much salt... I used about half this and that seemed just right to me...***
  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 6 6-ounce skinless halibut fillets or cod fillets.
  • Combine first 6 ingredients in a blender. Add 1 1/4 tsp salt. (about half this, if you decided to use less like I did) Puree until salsa is smooth. Transfer to a small bowl. Cover and chill. (can be made 2 hours ahead)
  • Preheat broiler. Line broiler pan with foil. Coat foil with nonstick spray. Combine pepper, coriander, and remaining salt in a small bowl; stir to blend. Pat fish dry. Sprinkle fish on all sides with seasoning mixture.
  • Arrange fish on prepared pan. Broil until just opaque in center, 3 to 4 minutes per side, depending on thickness.
  • Transfer fish to plates. Spoon some salsa over top. Garnish with cilantro leaves. Serve with remaining salsa.
