Chili-Lime Halibut with Corn Saute

While I feel like I default to chicken a lot for our dinners, I am always up for a good fish recipe! I found this one in veggie-full magazine and with just a little tweaking it quickly became a new favorite in our house. I know it will be requested over and over which makes me happy! Halibut is a mild, sweet tasting white fish and the chile-lime seasoning in this recipe gives it just the right amount of flavor! It has simple ingredients and takes a short amount of time to prep/cook. Both very important things for me during a busy week! The corn saute that goes with it is equally delicious and if I’m ever lucky enough to have any left over I will certainly save it and enjoy it as a cold, small side one day for lunch!

4 – 5oz. filets of halibut
