This flatfish may look a little silly, but there’s no joking around when it comes to halibut’s delicious flavor. We’ve paired this lean, flaky, and mildly sweet fish with a warm, smoky blackening seasoning that you can make as spicy as you like. Either use a premade blend or mix your own by combining 1½ tbsp smoked paprika, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp garlic powder, ½ tsp kosher salt, ½ tsp ground black pepper, ½ tsp dried thyme, ½ tsp dried basil, ½ tsp dried oregano, and ¼ tsp cayenne pepper.
