Sweet bananas combined with oranges, cilantro and lime juice create a fresh relish to serve with mild, white-fleshed fish, or try it alongside roast chicken or pork.

Prep: 15 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes
  • 1 pound
    halibut, cod (see Tips) or other white-fleshed fish
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    kosher salt
  • ripe bananas, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    freshly grated orange zest
  • oranges, peeled, segmented (see Tips) and chopped
  • 1/4 cup
    chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons
    lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    kosher salt
  1. To prepare fish: Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Cut fish into 4 portions. Mix coriander and salt in a small bowl and sprinkle evenly on both sides of the fish. Place on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake the fish until it is juicy and almost flakes when pressed with a knife, 8 to 12 minutes, depending on thickness.
  4. To prepare relish: Meanwhile, stir together bananas, orange zest, chopped oranges, cilantro, lime juice, coriander and salt in a medium bowl. To serve, spoon the relish over the roasted fish.



Tip: To segment (or suprême) an orange: 1. Slice both ends off the fruit. 2. With a sharp knife, remove the peel and white pith; discard. 3. Cut the segments from the surrounding membranes.


Look for U.S. wild-caught Pacific halibut, U.S. Pacific cod or Atlantic cod from Iceland and the northeast Arctic. For more information, visit Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch at
