Flax Me Some Halibut

The other day, my wife and I took a lunchtime bike ride into town to visit our favourite fishmonger, New Hope Seafood Market. As always, they did not disappoint with their selection, and this time, we left with two Halibut steaks. On the ride home, I kept hearing Jerry Seinfeld saying, “Fax me some Halibut,” in my head…so we decided to flax crust it and name the dish, “Flax me some Halibut!”

To round out the flavours, we used a little garlic powder and salt…and everything came out really well! We paired our fish with a cauliflower/zucchini/carrot medley that we steamed and then sautéed in a little butter to finish.

Time: 20 Minutes


  • Halibut Steaks (we went with 8 oz portions)
  • Salt (kosher or sea)
  • Garlic Powder
  • Flax Meal/Ground Flax


  • Turn your broiler to low, place your oven rack about 3 notches below the broiler, line a baking sheet with some foil, and give the foil a quick oil spray.
  • Pat your fish dry with a paper towel, and place it atop your baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle some salt and garlic powder on your fish.
  • Sprinkle your flax meal atop, and carefully (as to not spray flax everywhere), spray the tops of your flax crusted fish with some olive oil.
  • Broil for about 15-20 minutes until your fish reaches an internal cooked temp of at least 145 degrees F (at this point, it will flake easily with a fork), and your flax meal begins to char.
  • Plate, devour, and enjoy!
