Mediterranean Halibut and Asparagus


1 lb. halibut (deboned)

1 bunch of asparagus, rinsed and tough stems broken or cut off

5 oz. salad greens (You can buy the prewashed bags which are the perfect amount for 4 servings)

1/2 cup hummus (of course the brand you use will make a difference so buy a flavor you love. I used Trader Joe's Mediterranean.)

juice of 1/2 lemon

1 Tbsp. olive oil

2 Tbsp. fat free plain greek style yogurt

1/4 tsp. ground black pepper

1/4 tsp. paprika

4 kalamata olives, dices

3 sundried tomatoes, diced


  1. Whisk together the hummus, lemon juice, olive oil, yogurt, black pepper, and paprika. Stir in the olives and sundried tomatoes.
  2. Spray a large saute pan with oil and heat on medium-low. Place fish and asparagus in the pan. Pour sauce over. Put top on and saute 6-8 minutes.
  3. Turn the fish and asparagus over and saute another 6-8 minutes with top on (the time will depend on how thick your halibut steaks are). 
  4. Prepare four plates with a bed of salad greens. Top with asparagus and halibut. Spoon the drippings over the salad greens for dressing.
