This recipe is inspired by the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations diet on Vancouver Island’s rugged west coast. Halibut is an historically important food source for many First Nations in coastal communities.
Why I love this recipe
It uses local ingredients from the Pacific Northwest and halibut is very tasty and ultra low in fat.

Put 2 halibut fillets side by side on top of onions.
Add salt and pepper to fillets.
Place a seceond layer of onions on top of fillets and cover lightly with honey minced with fresh hemlock tree** spring buds.
Add a touch of olive oil.
Place uncovered in the oven for 25-30 minutes at 350ºF.
