Halibut isn’t exactly salmon, so let’s start with a little education.

It’s a white fish, but it’s thick and pretty dense, as opposed to tilapia’s thin, flaky texture. Halibut also has a light, mild flavor that makes it a crowd-pleaser and easy to season.

Which is where tarragon comes in. If you’re also slightly confused by this slightly exotic herb, know that it’s got a licorice-like flavor. Stick to a pinch and it’ll be subtle, but don’t go overboard.

Now that you’re a Tarragon Halibut expert, all that’s left is to enjoy your dinner.

Fish is a heart-healthy source of protein and fats, which is why we love it as the center of a meal. Halibut also provides minerals such as selenium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium, and the herbs provide both flavor and antioxidants. Plate it next to roasted vegetables or a big, fresh salad, and dinner is served.
