The fish was SO succulent and flakey, but the grits were what took it over the top! Nutty, rich, earthy — simply divine.

Now – let’s get one thing straight, first: these are not cornmeal grits. These are cauliflower grits, which means that this recipe is not only Specific Carb Diet friendly, but it’s also Keto, Paleo and Gluten Free!

On a tin-foil lined baking sheet, drizzle your asparagus with 2 Tbsp EVOO, salt and pepper and bake for 30 minutes until golden and crispy.

Next, place your halibut filets on a tinfoil lined-baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, and evenly sprinkle the top with a healthy portion of Old Bay seasoning. (It has salt in the spice mix). Crack some black pepper on top, squeeze the juice of half a lemon over top, and bake for 14-18 minutes, until it has reached an internal temp of 145.

Meanwhile, saute your onion, shallots and garlic in EVOO, salt and pepper and oregano for about 3-5 minutes over medium-high heat. Add your mushrooms and let them cook for about 5 minutes. Then, add your frozen peas, and let them cook for about 3 minutes. Then, add your cauliflower rice, and cook for another 3 minutes, until it has just cooked through. (You don’t want it to get mushy.)

To plate, place a bed of the cauliflower grits on the plate. Top with a few asparagus spears and one halibut filer. Garnish with toasted pine nuts.

There’s something so delicious about cauliflower grits — they take on this nutty flavor that is unlike anything else! And it pairs so beautifully with the earthy, meaty mushrooms and the sweet green peas.

But the halibut stole the show! This is definitely a “special occasion” fish – and boy was it worth it!

It has such a delicately sweet flavor – not “fishy” at all. It was the perfect vessel for the warm, cajun spiciness! I just LOVE Old Bay seasoning. I use it literally every day in one way or another.

And it really sings in this recipe.

So do yourself a favor and MAKE THIS DISH! It is such a treat, and a special way to show someone you care!

  1. That looks absolutely delicious! I love Halibut. I’ve been making Flounder lately. Tried it for the first time a few months ago. It is a nice mild white fish like Halibut. Your recipe would go great with that too. Yum! Blessings!

    1. Thanks Ryan! Me too – it’s a fabulous kind of fish! Ooh founder – I’ve had it once and enjoyed it. Orange roughie is one I recently tried too! Very delish! Thanks for stopping by! Hope you’re having a great week! Hugs and love xox

  2. Your recipe sounds amazing!! Since it’s a Cajun recipe, I recommend a a spicy seasoning from Louisiana called Slap Ya Momma. I can’t wait to try this delicious dish. Merci beaucoup!

    1. Oh Gosh thank you so much! Oooh that sounds delicious – and what a name! Hahaha thanks Ginger for stopping by! Hugs and love xox

    1. Oh nice! Thank you Z! Yes – I’ve found that adding fish to my diet has been so so beneficial! Hugs and love xox

  3. Nice, as a true Louisianan, I would add some “Tony’s Chachere’s” seasoning and a splash of Tabasco (pepper sauce). At least a hint of 🌶 spicy; it does not have to be too extreme. I’ll be trying this recipe. Hugs and Love 🤗 & ❤️.
