Halibut with Herb Sauce Is the Power Protein You Need

There’s a bit of confusion floating around out there as to just how much protein we need every day. Turns out, it’s quite a lot—and it's often harder than you think to get the right amount.

Eggs, chicken, and red meat are always good go-to options, but you can’t count out one of the healthiest options around: fish. Fish is rich in healthy fats our bodies need for energy, and despite popular opinion, it’s not just for fancy weekend dinners. With just a few simple ingredients, you can whip up a delicious fish dish for a family or as prep for lunch for the week.

This weeks’s P.volve recipe uses wild caught halibut, a white fish filled with vitamins B12, B6, and selenium—all of which are responsible for essential functions like mood regulation and immune system support. The olive oil, lemon, and herbs in the recipe are also filled with even more anti-inflammatory properties and important nutrients.

Here, you’ll learn the benefits of parchment-wrapping your fish—a favorite RK technique for keeping it juicy and flavorful! When paired with the herb sauce, it becomes a complete meal alongside more veggies. Even better, extra sauce can be kept on hand for almost any other meal throughout the week! See below for the full halibut recipe.
