This Foil Packet Lemon Rosemary Halibut is one of my favorite fish recipes. It’s simple, made with only a few ingredients, and is packed with protein all while tasting great.

The sauce that results from the lemon, rosemary, and greek yogurt mixture tastes amazing on to of veggies, rice, quinoa ( or anything really! ) 

This gluten-free recipe also works with different types of white fish, but halibut is my current favorite. 🙂

This recipe is actually similar to a very old recipe that used to be on my blog. It is a recipe that my mother made growing up that we all absolutely loved. 

She would put white fish in a foil packet and top it in lemon juice, herbs, and sour cream.

I wanted to create something with a similar taste but without the sour cream. Greek yogurt works amazing here!

Ingredients needed to make this Foil Packet Lemon Rosemary Halibut:

  • halibut
  • lemon juice
  • greek yogurt
  • rosemary
  • lemon slices
  • salt and pepper

Greek yogurt is high in protein and low in fat ( make sure to use one that is  0% or 2% fat).

In my old recipe, I used tilapia to make this dish, but I didn’t want to do that here. I have been staying away from tilapia the last few years. 

The reason for this is it’s so hard to trust that it’s actually sourced well.

Check out this article from Dr. Axe, if you want to look into why I avoid tilapia.

How to make this Foil Packet Lemon Rosemary Halibut recipe:

This recipe is really easy to put together!

You start by cutting small to medium sized pieces of aluminum foil. You need one piece per of fish.

Put the halibut in the middle of the aluminum foil. Then cover the fish in lemon juice, salt, and pepper. 

Lastly top the fish in greek yogurt, fresh rosemary, and slices of lemon.

You could probably use dried rosemary, but the flavor of fresh rosemary really makes it taste so much more flavorful and fresh!

Then you fold up the aluminum foil to create a packet so that all of the fish is covered up.

And then you bake it!

Basically, you just put all the ingredients into a foil packet, and 20 minutes later you have a really healthy, high protein meal ready!

Quick tip: bake whatever else you want to eat with the fish on the pan at the same time! I like to add cauliflower or potatoes to the pan and then it all cooks at the same time!

As I mentioned, this recipe is an update of an old recipe. So I just made sure the recipe proportions were right and retook the photos.

It basically required more taste testing and a new blog post! It was fun to do because it is delicious.

The photos needed a major upgrade!

It’s funny comparing my old photos to my new ones.

I mean look at my original recipe’s photo below compared to the rest on this post. Wahhh Would anyone want to eat that fish? haha
