• Two 5 ounce halibut fillets
  • 1 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1 large clove garlic, peeled and crushed
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


1. Preheat broiler.

2. Combine yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl; mix well.

3. Line a broiler pan with foil and place fish on top, skin side down. Spread half the yogurt sauce over fish fillets. Put fish 4 inches under broiler and cook for 10 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork and topping is golden.

4. Serve warm with remaining yogurt sauce on the side.


Fish is full of omega 3 fatty acids, which are good for the heart. Make this a meal by serving with brown rice tossed with apricots, and a steamed vegetable.
