Healthy Meals Monday: Baked Mexican Fish

I'm just going to be completely honest, I am not a fish person at all. However, I tried this Baked Mexican Fish, and it literally tasted like chicken. My kids ate it, and my husband who loves fish, obviously loved this recipe (even though it didn't even taste like fish, maybe it was just a mental thing?). It was so easy, healthy, and delicious. You'll love it.

We are MOVING in one week and I’m trying to use all the halibut in our freezer so we don’t have to bring it with us.
I was sick of all our halibut recipes so I decided to try a new one. When my husband came home he yelled… “It smells so good.”
I always know that is a good sign.  One thing I love about Halibut is that if you cook it the right way it tastes like chicken instead of fish. My kids loved this “chicken” meal.
It is full of flavor, and is also extremely healthy for you. If you need a quick and healthy meal, we highly recommend this Baked Mexican Fish.

what could I serve with this recipe?

Fish can be a tricky recipe, to pair sides with, however, we have a few ideas your family will love. They are simple and come together quickly, because who has time for side dishes, after making a main dish?

Here are a few sides, we recommend for this recipe:

Asparagus: This vegetable pairs nicely with any kind of fish. Whether you cook them together or separate, they taste so yummy together.

We recommend trying our Ranch Asparagus recipe, to go with this Baked Mexican Fish.

Brussel Sprouts: Like asparagus, brussel sprouts pair nicely with fish dishes. We highly recommend trying out our Honey Sriracha Brussel Sprouts. 

-Corn: For this particular recipe, corn would also be a delicious side dish. We highly recommend trying out our Mexican Street Corn Salad Recipe.
